Abstract:
Of the state's 220,000 construction workers, 65,000 are Latino. They are typically productive, rarely miss work, and are willing to put in long hours. Martin discusses how Latino labor influences the way things are built and what materials are used in the construction. He also discusses why Latino workers get injured or killed at a higher rate than other construction workers and how some are exploited by employers.
