Here is a nice story about how Napa County, home of some of the best wine in the world, takes care of its migrant workers with houising and support. The bottom line: "The effort was born of compassion and practicality. Without migrant labor, most of it from Mexico, the wine producers in Napa would be hard pressed to fill a carafe, much less the valley’s 9 million annual cases."
Knowing how its bread is buttered, Napa County is taking a very different path in responding to newcomers than other state and local governments.
