A bin holding hundreds of pounds of freshly steamed crabs cools off for future picking at a crab processing facility in Fishing Creek, MD, July 22, 2010. Mexican women who come to the US on guestworkers’ visas to pick crabs fear their source of income could be in danger after a report by the Washington College of Law and Centro de los chos del Migrante (Center for Migrant Rights) alleged that foreign crabpickers live and work in dire conditions and are pushing US workers out of jobs. The report, called “Picked Apart”, not only said Mexican women crabpickers are underpaid, overworked and have no way of enforcing their rights, but also that they are taking jobs from Americans.
