ABSTRACT
This article reports that the U.S. Department of Labor has temporarily halted the collection of data for a national survey of migrant and seasonal farmworkers that yielded information for the Education Department about working youths who do not attend U.S. schools. It provides information on past schooling, working conditions, wages, health, language ability, and other aspects of the lives of school-age youths as well as of adults. Veronica Vargas Stidvent, the assistant secretary of policy for the Labor Department, said she has called for a "temporary pause" in the data collection for the survey so her office can review the labor agency's contract with Aguirre International, a Burlingame, California-based firm that has conducted the survey.
