Season 4, Episode 5 Los Trabajadores/The Workers

First Aired: March 25, 2003

“Los Trabajadores/The Workers” profiles two migrant workers in Austin during 1999 and 2000, as the city's day-laborers market is moved from one location to another. There's community opposition in both places, but that doesn't stop either Ramon Castillo, a 44-year-old Mexican family man, or Juan Ignacio Gutierrez, a single 24-year-old from Nicaragua. “We don't come to make problems for anyone," sighs Castillo. "We come to work and nothing more.”
