As Michel de Certeau has masterfully shown us, space and time are intrinsically linked to the comings and goings of urban living, generating and then dissolving the social spaces where jornaleros spend their time in apparent destitution, talking, telling each other stories, giving each other advice, and waiting long hours for work. Every now and then some men—like Clemente, who constantly kept an eye on the traffic coming his way—would step into the street with a raised arm trying to hail down a car or truck, calling out "Leibor!

The people whose houses they painted, whose furniture they moved, all the gardens they fixed up, and everything else are all tied up in the system.

    It is sure to provoke debate among social researchers, activists, and citizens concerned with immigration, inequality, and social justice. Thus, when we measured the number of day laborers present on a particular morning, our calculations started with the four corners. Pepe Soto, 40, a construction worker from Peru, said day laborers could be easily duped by contractors or subcontractors when asking for payment. The site is only a block to the north of University Avenue, one of the city's main streets. This wage was in fact considered low and only appropriate for easy tasks, like taking out the garbage or sweeping. From time to time, other members of the MI visited the site, most notably Paula Worby, whose thesis in public health dealt with alcoholism among the men there Worbyand Father Rigo, the group's director.

    On the street, the men try in vain to turn one-off, underpaid jobs into patron-client relationships. Pepe Soto, 40, a construction worker from Peru, said day laborers could be easily duped by contractors or subcontractors when asking for payment. Both eye-opening and heart-breaking, this account offers a unique perspective on how the informal economy of undocumented labor truly functions in American society"--Provided by publisher. There are also weekly food rituals like the monjitas, Catholic nuns of the Missionaries of Charity order founded by Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who come every Wednesday and hand out pastries, hotdogs, and coffee in exchange for a few moments of prayer and Catholic doctrine. By keeping records, he said, workers will be prepared to prove they have not been paid.

If he leaves, we can take a picture of his car. Definitely not men you marry if you want a husband who is actually there. If anything, with the upcoming elections we can see undocumented migration is again at the heart of the political debate and many proposals propose situations that are even more drastic than the one the men I studied were going through at the height of the economic crisis.

Lacking internal and external validity, this book is merely an exploratory study that points to a variety of intriguing themes, rather than a significant contribution to a very timely topic.

They usually live in distant parts of Oakland, some even two hours away by bus, although most men spend between thirty and sixty minutes on public transportation each way.

Among some of the younger crowd, US inner-city youth culture has influenced their style, and one might see what at first seem to be teenagers in baggy pants, tennis shoes, and even flashy jewelry. Some men seem barely teenagers, while others are much older, even beyond middle age. I found the medical issues covered to a degree that gave me a feel for what Dr.

Yet on Hearst Avenue toward Ninth Street, they materialize suddenly as a group, standing or sitting on the curbs, chatting, drinking coffee, and eating breakfast from microwavable noodle cups and ready-made wraps bought at local gas stations or from one of the informal food sources that cater to the corner.

La Parada de Berkeley 2. No matter the season, the early passerby will see jornaleros standing or sitting with their hands in the front pockets of their pants or sweatshirts, hunched over with their faces covered by hoods or caps.

Most men wear old and stained clothes, usually jeans, sweatshirts with hoods, and baseball caps. I spent a great deal of time on the only corner that has a good place to sit, a small wall that is also a bus stop on the south side of Fifth Street.

Inthe Berkeley esquina had a highly regulated minimum wage of ten dollars an hour. Along with these county programs, members of the institute also helped people file claims at the California Labor Commission, contacted problem employers, and referred special cases to other NGOs, notably El Centro Legal de la Raza in Oakland.

Between Fourth and Sixth Streets, the jornaleros who stand on the curb are constantly passed by motor and foot traffic directed to and from the upscale shops and businesses. Worby also found that while the site was predominantly Mexican in see Worby ; Organista and Kuboby half the day laborers were Mexican and the other half were primarily Guatemalan, with a few Salvadorans and Hondurans Worby 7.

The men in Jornalero loved joking about their suffering and everything else in their lives but in between lines were terrible experiences of separation, discrimination, and sorrow that are direct results of their contribution to the communities where they live and work.

The men, however, kept a close eye on the next group the driver approached and laughed if they too shook their heads, or complained if someone got into the car. These other places have their own informal labor sites, so coming to Berkeley is a conscious choice—one that entails a monetary investment in transportation.

The physical space here is thus not isolated from everyday, mainstream passersby as is the case with many other sites in the Bay Area and other parts of the country but is rather smack in the middle of one of the city's main commercial streets: West Berkeley's "Forth Street Shops" that include stores, a bank, and several offices.

This noise becomes deafening at times, and a casual conversation is likely to end abruptly or turn into a screaming match as huge trucks attempt to make complex maneuvers in the small streets, often resulting in fender benders with parked cars.

Carefully documented, superbly argued, and crisply written, this book avoids the celebratory tones of many an account of urban marginality and dissects la parada the corners where day laborers wait for work as sites of deep-seated vulnerability, racialized exclusion, and abuse—veritable traps where men, while seeking to survive and send much-needed money back home, look for respect and recognition.
