Description

From North Dakota beet fields to California campgrounds to Amazon's Texas CamperForce program, employers have found a new cheap labor pool: transient older Americans. Casualties of the Great Recession, they've taken to the road by the tens of thousands in a growing migrant labor community of "workampers." Jessica Bruder hit the road to tell their eye-opening tale.
