The object of this thesis is to show the process of adjustment which the Mexican faces when he leaves his less competitive physical and social environment in Mexico and lives in a typical steel city of the Northern section of the United States. This study is sociological, rather than economic in its approach. It is an attempt to get at the way in which these people live, and the attitudes which they have toward themselves and other groups.
