Marco, 28, is an H-2A visa immigrant farm laborer employed by Fresh Harvest in Salinas, California. He feels he has been able to transform his family's life because of this kind of employment. Because the pay is so much higher for farm labor in the U.S., this work is viewed as life-changing by many rural Mexican farm workers. There are few opportunities in Southern Mexico, which is very poor and run by the Cartels. Fresh Harvest is the one of the largest employers of people using the H-2A temporary agricultural worker visa for labor, harvesting and staffing in the United States.
