Migrant Housing

My local travels brought me to a group of homes surrounded by acres of land. I believe that this would be temporary housing for farm workers.

The first home was a bit tattered but the outhouses appeared to be well maintained with a fresh coat of paint on them.

I always find it stunning when I see workers toiling under the sun as they bend all day to pick crops. I also think these are proud human beings who would do anything to maintain a family, and they are happy to do this work.

This may well be a kitchen building where meals are prepared, but I don’t know that for sure.

This home appears to be set up so it can be a small store which probably sells sodas, and snacks.

It is my sense that later this summer these homes will be occupied by workers with very good backs, who must be very tired by days end.
