Cycle of poverty in San Joaquin Valley may offer clues to future of U.S.

This photo taken Saturday June 1, 2013, in Fresno, Calif. shows farmworker Cristina Melendez, 36, and her mother Maria Rosales, 60, working on the vegetable garden outside the mother's apartment. Rosales, now a U.S. citizen, brought Melendez to work in California's fields when the girl was 13, hoping farm work would be a spring board to a better life, but Melendez and two of her oldest sons have yet to find a way out of the fields and out of the cycle of poverty in which the family has been stuck for generations.
