Abstract

This article addresses the issue of migrant contentment and satisfaction with life in an intermediate-sized Latin America city. The paper compares migrant populations with their urban-born neighbors in two low-income settlements by looking at types of employment, household head incomes, and household earnings. Although in many respects the two neighborhoods [barrios) differ greatly from each other, one of the points made here is that, comparatively speaking, migrants do quite well in the city. Furthermore, there is considerable agreement among migrants that life in this city represents a major improvement over places where they previously resided. In spite of this, some prognostications, specifically regarding growing radicalism among the poor, are offered.
