Domingo Martinez

Domingo Martinez Jr., 36, has been a migrant farm worker since he was nine years old.  His father, Domingo Sr., worked for the father of the farmer Martinez works for now.  For the past five years, Martinez has worked as a tractor driver and overall handyman for Tom Jensen of Rocking TJ Farms in Hemingford, Neb.

Martinez spends March through November in western Nebraska, and moves his family back to McAllen, Texas for the rest of the year.

Because of the rain and mud today, Martinez spent the day working in the shop and creating some new plumbing for the fertilizer.
