Based on interviews with Leamington greenhouse growers and migrant Mexican workers, Tanya Basok offers an analysis of why the Seasonal Agricultural Workers Programme is needed. She argues that while Mexican workers do not necessarily constitute cheap labour for Canadian growers, they are vital for the survival of some agricultural sectors because they are always available for work, even on holidays and weekends, or when exhausted, sick, or injured. Basok exposes the mechanisms that make Mexican seasonal workers unfree and shows that the workers' virtual inability to refuse the employer's demand for their labour is related not only to economic need but to the rigid control exercised by the Mexican Ministry of Labour and Social Planning and Canadian growers over workers' participation in the Canadian guest worker programme, as well as the paternalistic relationship between the Mexican harvesters and their Canadian employers.

Review:

A very significant contribution to Canadian rural studies, the first to deal with Mexican migratory farm workers with a special focus on the greenhouse vegetable sector. It will no doubt form a basis and springboard for future studies on Mexican rural workers in other parts of Canada and in commodities other than greenhouse vegetables and tobacco. Frans J. Schryer, Department of Sociology and Anthropology, University of Guelph
