Aloft in poster skies since 1966, the symbol of the UFW thunderbird was rarely figured. Here it spreads its wings against a La Raza sun to advertise unusual need, with a personalismo appeal promising dirt wages and "the good fight." A pad of applications fits the lower corner. The poster is an example not simply of functional grace but of function itself -- for how else beyond word of mouth could such specialists be recruited on short notice?
