Abstract:

Anthropological description to a Hispanic barrio suggests that it is a network of interdependencies among people that extends well beyond the physical limits of the neighborhood. It contains unacculturated Mexican migrants mostly from Mexican cities, anomic youth, core youth, as well as acculturated middle class families. It can be a source of Navy recruitment, but only some of the residents will be sufficiently acculturated to the suitable for the Navy. Most residents lack work skills and need assistance to learn how to present themselves to employers. Observations of the interactions of Hispanic youth in Anglo work groups suggested that acculturated Hispanics can help unacculturated Hispanics to function effectively in such groups. Author
