See the New York Times investigation on Mexican carnival workers, written by Michael Sean Comerford, who spent 10 months with 10 carnivals researching the matter. ... I can't seem to find the NYT link but the article is also available on Linkedin

Here is a much earlier, more in-depth study of the subject:

https://www.wcl.american.edu/clinical/do......port.pdf

"The department of Labor, department of Homeland Security, department of State, national Labor relations Board, and equal employment opportunity Commission should coordinate to:

...Vigorously investigate and litigate claims of
abuse and discrimination against H-2B work-
ers, even after workers have returned to their
countries of origin at the expiration of their
work visas. "

The change from individual tickets to POP (arm bands) has stood the industry on it's head. Now it's all in the hands of the owners, showmanship has gone out the window. So has loyalty to the generations of people who ate hotdogs and slept on the ground to build up these shows for the owners fathers and grandfathers.
Less than 2% of reported UFO's turn out to be actual interplanetary vehicles.
