Broken Backs: Modern Slavery in the Fields of Southwestern Florida

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In Southwestern Florida, migrant field laborers are being victimized at the discretion of farm bosses and the tomato industry. The three main goals of this paper are to (1) Explain the current conditions of slave labor and human trafficking in Southwestern Florida, (2) Discuss the work of labor activists, and (3) Explore the relationship between local law enforcement and the migrant field laborers. I explore the struggles of migrant field labors through content analyses, fieldwork, and interviews. The approach used to study and understand the workers behind the Florida tomato industry is unique to the existing literature of modern slavery in that it moves beyond advocacy towards a criminological and political analysis.
