They’re Blending Health and Immigration Amid the Ferment
A group of Oregon winemakers have found their own way forward with two of America’s intractable issues: They’re providing single-payer health care and dealing with their immigration problem. As the federal government and many Americans grow more hostile toward the undocumented, those workers are becoming more reluctant to seek health care. That’s where Salud, a mobile health clinic financed by the vintners, comes in. It travels the state offering care to winery employees, trying to maintain their well-being even as today’s anxieties churn stomachs and raise blood pressures.
