60 minutes on Texas Farmworkers

Last weekend 60 minutes ran a story on migrant youth farm labor.  The story features a Texas family staying in a TDHCA-licensed migrant labor housing facility. In the short online-only ‘extra’ clip below, 60 minutes reporter Byron Pitts is astounded at the fact the family is charged a damage deposit to stay at the facility.  The camera pans across cracked and sagging ceilings while Pitts asks “What could you do to this place?”

The complete, 11.42 minutes story is after the “more” jump.
