The lack of field sanitation on agricultural job sites increases the probability of agricultural workers reporting gastrointestinal disorders by 60%. Adverse living conditions significantly increase the probability of gastrointestinal, respiratory, and muscular problems. These three health problems do not appear to increase the probability that a worker’s family is on welfare or to lower workers' earnings. Respiratory problems, however, substantially increase the probability that the worker receives unemployment compensation.
