From the abstract:
This article explores the landscape of low-wage work in the South and the experience of the Workplace Justice Project at the Loyola University New Orleans College of Law’s Stuart H. Smith Law Clinic and Center for Social Justice. It focuses on the history of the Project as a response to the influx of low-wage, primarily Hispanic, workers, that came to New Orleans in the months and years after Katrina to help with the re-building of the city.
