No slavery in the U.S.? Who is harvesting our crops? Under what conditions? With what pay? With what health care?

 

We made this short film in Immokalee Florida (where 1/3 of the tomatoes in our grocery stores are grown). We spent a day with Lupe Gonzalo, a tomato picker and organizer for CIW (Coalition of Immokalee Workers).
