Attached is an excerpt from a longer article about the U.S. Border Patrol's adventures in Texas; it tells of one patrolman's shocking discovery as to how abusive the growers were to their hired hands - how dreadful were their living conditions:

"The Mexicans worked twelve hours a day and were required to live in the company's labor shacks, twenty to twenty-five in a room. For such housing the workers were charged twenty-five cents a day apiece. They had to buy their supplies at the company commissary where prices were from fifty to seventy-five percent higher than outside stores... At the end of the season, almost all the Mexicans owed the company money."
