Life of migrant workers is rough editor s note a team of associated press writers from Charlotte Raleigh and Columbia have taken an exhausts look at the living conditions of migrant labourers in the Carolinas. This is the first of a Sanes of articles detailing their findings and giving a first hand account of one migrant labor Camp. By Tom Wells associated press writer Johns Island. So. Apr the warm Spring rain trickled Down my face and soaked my shirt As i stood outside the two dozen or so skeletal shacks in a Johns Island migrant labor Camp. Small piles of garbage Here and there were beginning to break Down under the steady Shower and float in pools of Muddy water. A Large wet rat darted from a trash pile to cover under one of the shacks. The fresh rain was not enough to Knock out the stench from the outside toilets about 75 feet from the shacks. I began to have second thoughts about posing As a mexican migrant labourer on the Island near Charleston. But it was too late to Back out. The Black minister who had told me about the Camp and who had Given me a ride to it had already left. I waited in the rain with my tote bag Slung Over my Shoul Der while a Small knot of Black labourers decided which Shack to put me in. One of them put his Arm around my shoulder and said a come with me he led me around the Corner to a Row of unused shacks that were Back to Back with the Row that faced the garbage piles. A go ahead and pick the one you want a the labourer said. He led me to the door of one and told me it was the cleanest. Empty food tins trash and human waste were on the floor of the 10-by-10 foot dwelling. There was no lighting no sink no furniture. When i saw and smelled where i was to sleep i began to feel the same Way i did when i was a boy on an Oklahoma farm and saw my aunt Cut off a chickens head and clean the Bird. I began to feel hot and woozy and began to . There were Only four decaying Walls and an unscreened painless window. A wooden cover could be latched Over the window to keep the Mosquito out but it would mean sleeping in a sweat Box. A smelly wet. Cot sized mattress that had been partly burned was spread out on the floor. The next morning i found lice in my hair and bed bugs Over my body. Later another worker popped around the Corner. A come on around Here Man a he said. A you sleep in this other one that a already got some men in i sloshed Back around the Corner through the mud and garbage grateful for anything that was an improvement. I realized that a dry mattress a Lightb Ulp and a Blanket were almost luxury items. The room where i was to stay was larger than the first but it too was made of rotting Wood. The Walls separating four of the smaller compartments had been knocked out to make a room of 20-by-20 feet. I was to be the fifth occupant. The Man whose cot was to the left of the Entrance was silting on the Edge of his bed eat ing his dinner from a paper plate. A you eaten yet brother a he asked As he looked up and held the plate toward me. The uncertainty of what was on the plate which looked As though it had been piled with Slop overcame my hunger. So i lied. A no in be already eaten a i said in English with the singsong accent of the mexican labourer. One of the men retrieved some rusted bed Springs from one of the trash piles. Another arranged four wooden Tomato crates to serve As a Frame. Another Man brought a mattress from one of the empty see life in 3-a
