Labor Shed Plan Is
Told Rv Hillsboro
Ennis Chamber of Commerce,
which has started Inquires concern-
ing how migrant labor sheds have
been established’ in Teaxs communi-
ties about the stze of Ennis, has re-
ceived the description of how the
project materialized in Hillsboro
The arrangements are outlined in
the following letter:
Ennis Chamber of Commerce.
In reply to vour letter of August
4, with reference to tire transit la-
bor shed In our city, please be ad-
vised that, this labor shed was built
In July. 1949 by city funds, at a cost
of approximately »2,W)0. In the con-
rtrurtinn of this building, the city
utilized discarded pipe which were
welded together to form the, frame
and the roof is of corrugated Iron.
The, overall size of the building Is
uppntxlamtoly 50x120 feet, and has
a small office space of approxi-
mately 8x10. In addition, and near-
by this building are located our
restrooms which in the beginning,
consisted of two toilets and two
showers for both male and female.
In recent years, these, faculties were
expanded and now consist, of five
toilets, and showers for both male
e.od female. This building is located
one block north of the, court, house
square and next door to a grocery
store and frozen food bank. This
building, or transit labor shed, is
used bv (Mir migratory workers dur-
ing our cotton chopping and cot-
ton harvest season and is operated
by the Texas Employment Commis-
sion During the, off season, It Is
used by the farmers as a produce
marketing place and also by various
organizations for cattle shows, etc.
The facilities there are open the
year around and the, building and
toilets are maintained by the city
at a. cost ol *10 per month.
We feel that this shed has been a
definite aaset to the community
and to the, county. We have found
that migratory workers ha.ve be-
come accustomed to our facilities
and a more ample supply of work-
ers Is available to. our farmers dur-
.ng our harvest season.
You afikPd for our suggestions in
regards to your estahllshlng such
a unit in your city. My suggestion
would be to locate your building as
close to the downtown business dis-
trict as possible, near to grocery
stores and cafes and provide plenty
of showers and toilet faculties We
would also caution you in regards
to permitting civic and ladles or-
ganizations to use the building dur-
ing the peak cotton harvnst season.
It has been our experience that we
have, had to limit, three organiza-
tions and the use of the building
during this particular season In
order to conserve spaoe and make it.
more useful to our migratory wo*1c-
We hope that this information
will be of some, help to you and we
are happy to help you in any wav
