Rebuilding After Katrina: A Population-Based Study of Labor and Human Rights in New Orleans
Laurel E. Fletcher (au)
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.
