There are a lot of hispanics in Laurel. Most of them work at the chicken plants.

As of 2000, Morton has the highest percentage of Hispanics at 13%. I assume that Vardaman has the highest percentage currently (Vardaman Elementary is 27% Hispanic as of 2006; in 2000 it was 13% while Vardaman's hispanic population was at 9.8%.)

Sources:

Census Data on Vardaman, Mississippi (You can find Morton's data on this website)

School Data on Vardaman Elementary

Towns in the Northern part of the state are seeing a rise in the Hispanic community. Tupelo and New Albany have communities in the surrounding areas. Many Hispanic people are working in construction and landscaping in the area. I know there are many who have worked on the gas pipeline that is going in for Toyota, and working with local contractors on bridges and buildings.

I would try tupelo if I were u, but what do you do for a living?
gulfport-construction
hattiesburg or laurel-chicken plants
tupelo- lots of plants and warehouses
if you are going to school then USM, when you are finished go north.
I grew up in south ms. an you will be treated fine, but there are no jobs and very little money.

Why would you assume that he would want a lower-level job? Maybe he's an executive , a teacher or a lawyer . Not all Hispanics work in a chicken factory. Lol.
