Hurricane Katrina made landfall just east of New Orleans, LA, on Aug. 29, 2005. After the disaster, local & out-of-state contractors soon moved into areas affected by the hurricane to begin the massive clean-up operation. Labor was scarce, but word of the need for labor spread quickly & the city was soon flooded with thousands of men & women eager to work. Some employers in the Gulf Coast area failed to pay their workers or to provide them with adequate safety equipment & housing. There were reports of abuse -- coupled with the easing of labor regulations, virtually no monitoring of construction sites, & the city’s lack of adequate housing & healthcare. This is a study of the situation of construction workers in New Orleans. Illus.
