Pineros Summary

Pineros: Latino Labour and the Changing Face of Forestry in the Pacific Northwest by Brinda Sarathy

Although the exploitation of Latino workers in many industries iswell known, pineros - Latino forest workers -toil largely in obscurity. Brinda Sarathy investigates how the USfederal government came to be one of the country's largestemployers of Latino labour, and documents pinero wages and workingconditions in comparison to those of white forest labourers. Pineroexploitation, Sarathy argues, is the product of an ongoing history ofinstitutionalized racism in the West. Overcoming this legacy depends onimproving the visibility and working conditions of pineros andproviding them with a stronger voice in immigration and forestrypolicy-making.
