Migrant Farmworker Access To Health Care: Article Analysis

Satisfactory Essays

The article by Shelley Davis (2001) analyzed farmworkers access to health care. It has been reported that approximately only five percent of migrant farmworkers receive health insurance from their employers (U.S Department of Labor, 2000). This article focused on giving a snapshot of farmworkers healthcare struggles. Specifically, educating the public on farmworkers inability to access healthcare for themselves or their closest kin. The fact that their employment is labeled as a high-risk and dangerous of either injury or illness and the inability of their employer to provide health care for these workers puts these migrant workers in a predicament. Often times they need to go without healthcare because of the lack of coverage, money, or time.
