Summary
Los trabajadores/The workers tells the story of immigrant day laborers, placing their struggles and contributions in the context of the economic development of Austin, Texas. Through the stories of two men, Ramon and Juan, and through the controversy surrounding the relocation of a day labor site from downtown to a residential neighborhood, the film examines the misperceptions and contradictions inherent in America's paradoxical history of both dependence on and abuse of immigrant labor
