“Laboring to Belong: Differentiation, Special Relocation and the Politics of Visibility in the United Farm Workers ‘Take Our Jobs’ Campaign”
Dr. Lisa Flores
The Presentation explores the deviating intersections of immigration, race and nation in the United Farm Worker's “Take Our Jobs (TOJ), Please!” campaign. The TOJ campaign promised to provide farm labor training for citizens and legal residents interested in working in the nations fields. Dr. Flores argues that the ironic tone of the TOJ campaign challenges anti-immigrant claims by forcing an “American” audience to face the realities of farm work and (undocumented) immigration.
