In 1960, CBS first aired Edward R. Murrow's landmark documentary "Harvest of Shame," which exposed the poor living conditions of many migrant farmworkers, including many in North Carolina. Forty-five years later, many migrant farmworkers in our state still face overcrowded, unsanitary and unhealthy living conditions. Focal Point: "Standards of Living" examines those conditions and a battle brewing over new legislation to improve them.
