Known as the "Salad bowl of the world" the Salinas Valley produces roughly two-thirds of the country’s lettuce and much of our celery, cauliflower, wine grapes, broccoli, and strawberries. It's an $8 billion agricultural economy... But the region also has a homelessness problem and extreme income equality issues. 

Brian Goldstone is an anthropologist who's currently writing a book about homelessness and housing insecurity. He's written a profile of a Salinas family's attempts to find housing co-published by the Economic Hardship Reporting Project and The California Sunday Magazine. 

KCBS Radio news anchor Rebecca Corral spoke with Brian earlier today.
