    I don’t mean to editorialize about migrant work but thought this was an interesting view of the effects of the dust bowl and the great depression on work and migration in 1940. It is likely we will see pressures like this soon as this pandemic rolls on, but if it works in reverse and people leave California for jobs or other needs vs. migrating into the state for relief, it wouldn’t surprise me. People are already seeking relief from high costs of living in California and that migration may increase as income and job availability diminishes.
