Episode description: The stories of two men, Ramon Castillo Aparacio and Juan Ignacio Gutierrez, explore the myriad contradictions of America's simultaneous dependence on and discrimination against immigrant laborers. The film follows the two for a year as they wait for work each morning at a day labor site in the boomtown of Austin, Texas—where men like Ramon and Juan make up much of the construction labor force—and the controversy that erupted over the relocation of the day labor site from downtown to a residential neighborhood.
