Annotation A history of farmworkers in California from the late nineteenth century through the Great Depression. Explores how small family farms were gradually replaced by industrial scale farming, which required large sources of cheap labor to make it profitable. Native Americans and the Chinese were forcibly pressed into service, while poor whites were attracted by misleading advertisements of high wages and false claims of land ownership. These labor injustices, which persisted for decades, led to high profile unionization efforts by the AFL-CIO (American Federation of Labor and the Committee for the Industrial Organization.)
