"Goodnight and good luck" was the tagline of Edward R Murrow, famous  wwII correspondent and newsman afterwards.

Interestingly, I recently watched a documantery he made about migrant farm workers in the US. It was made in 1960, when the majority  of the workers were native-born blacks and  some  anglos.  The living conditions were appalling then, and still are, I believe. The difference now is that almost  all migrant workers are Mexican  immigrants, mostly illegal and mostly do not speak english, so their situation is maybe even worse.

Ed Murrow would not be pleased to see how little progress has been made.
