In Migrant Worker Camps, Wifi Is a Basic Utility
July 9, 2020 /
During the Covid-19 pandemic, an agricultural community comes together to expand wifi access in migrant farmworker camps.
Google, which operates a large data center in The Dalles and makes grants that provide internet access to underserved communities, responded with $12,600. This funding helped purchase 21 hot spots and six Chromebooks for farmworkers to use throughout orchards in Wasco County.
The commitment by community organizations and local businesses to this effort also sends the message to farmworkers that they are valuable members of the community, and that their health and safety matter.
