On August 3, the Coalition of Immokalee workers, supported by School of the Americas watch,plus a few other supporters turned up outside a Trader Joe's in DC. They are demanding that Trader Joes sign the same contract Burger King and so many others have signed to pay just one penny per pound more for tomatoes.
Native American workers are being exploited by the tomato industry, paid a piece rate well below a minumum wage just for tomatoes that are a penny per pound cheaper than the ones purchased by those who have signed a contract with the CIW.
Do you really want to shop somewhere that exploits Native American workers just to save one penny on a pound of tomatoes?
