RISE UP 2002 IN LA on March 10,2002
The Coalition of Immokalee Workers needs your help to make Taco Bell a part of the solution in Florida's farmworkers' fight for dialogue and a fair wage
By contracting for cheap tomatoes grown and picked by farmworkers paid sub-poverty wages in Florida, Taco Bell contributes significantly to the continued misery of farmworkers and their families. We believe that the large corporations that buy Florida tomatoes must step up to their responsibility by demanding, and obtaining, changes in the shameful pay and working conditions suffered by the men and women who pick their tomatoes.
