520 |a Latino day laborers endure many hardships as they struggle to adjust as an immigrant community in the United States. This study sought to identify the extent of chronic stress reported by day laborers and the factors associated with stress. A total of 725 Latino day laborers were interviewed. The most reported sources of stress were having immigration-related problems, not having enough money to cover basic needs, having no savings, and having work hours change for the worse. Higher chronic stress was associated with homelessness (p < .001) and HIV-related risk behaviors in the previous 12 months (p < .05). In addition, chronic stress was found to be higher among respondents reporting incomes of US$5,000 to US$10,000 (p = .007) and still higher among respondents reporting incomes greater than US$10,000 (p < .001) compared with those in the lowest income level. Lower chronic stress was associated with having a partner (p < .05) or being single (p = .001) compared with being married. Addressing the stress experienced by day laborers is necessary to prevent potential negative health and mental health consequences among this population.
