Tim Andrés Pabon narrates this realistic fictional account of Juan, an undocumented worker. Pabon delivers this first-person narrative in a conversational tone, his accented English suggesting Juan's Mixteco background. With an earnest and eager voice, Juan seeks employment to help his family. In the background, listeners hear the sounds of dishwashers, food deliverers, and flower sellers. Juan finds restaurant work and meets a Chinese waitress who introduces him to a group of workers united in their struggle for fair wages and decent working conditions. Music and sound effects help set the mood of family life, meetings, and protests. Regardless of one's political persuasion, this story is valuable for its introduction to an American subculture that many Americans may not know or understand.
