This guy lost his job too…in 30s- 40s

Madera County, family from near Dallas, Texas. Rent is five dollars a month. "There's no future here. I've been following the work (migratory labor) but there's no chance for a fellow to get a holt hisself in this country. The last job I had is tractor driving for thirty-five cents an hour. Had that job for five months until a Filipino comes along for twenty-five cents an hour. I was raised on a cotton farm my father owned a little place back there and I'm plumb willing to leave this country for good before I get too old, If I could get the chance to farm."
