Thompson returns to Copperfield’s to discuss his new anthology of oral stories about the hardships, bravery, solidarity, and creativity experienced by migrant farmworkers. Although national attention has historically been drawn to their plight, the tales of the more than 800,000 men, women, and children who work in our fields—one third of the nation’s agricultural work force—are rarely heard today, despite the persistence of wage theft, dangerous working conditions, and uncertain futures.
