Abstract:

The experience of Hispanic immigrants to the United States has been primarily documented for the unskilled and semiskilled labor force. Yet post-1965 migratory trends point to a diverse composition in terms of social class backgrounds. This paper presents a life history of a middle-class Hispanic immigrant as a methodological step towards theory formulation. A model depicting the interrelationships between social class, social identity, and social mobility is presented and tested against life histories of informants at various social class levels. To explore the impact of gender on well-being, two variables -- employment status and family composition -- are examined using another data base. Testing themes extrapolated from a unique life history against larger samples provides validity to the life history and contributes to the understanding of the impact of structural change on personal biography. Major issues affecting Hispanic immigrants, stemming from the data presented, are outlined and their applicability to the knowledge base central to informed policy makers and program planners dealing with issues affecting immigrant populations are discussed.
