Labor Contractors and Immigrant Exclusion
This chapter discusses the operational anomalies in TransMundo Contractors, which provided workers to the B. C. Rogers Poultry in the late 1990s. For instance, the TransMundo's required its new hires to purchase, from the business itself, a fake completed I-9 forms worth three hundred dollars. On that note, the contractor only provided low wage payments—six to seven dollars per hour—for their five hundred workers, the vast majority of which worked on the night shift. The chapter further highlights the contractor's other under-the-table practices as well as the contract workers' struggles to improve their pay and working conditions, and unions' and worker advocates' roles amid systems of vast economic inequality.
