FAIR FOOD FIGHT. To address the poor wages and working conditions that make farm labor slavery possible, farm worker advocates have launched the Campaign for Fair Food. The campaign urges food industry giants to use their power to improve farm worker wages. This week, the Coalition of Immokalee Workers takes to the streets to march for three days to the headquarters of the number one supermarket company in Florida, Publix Supermarkets. Publix has refused to join the Campaign, which already has such high-profile corporations as Burger King, McDonalds, and Yum Brands, among others. This two-hour broadcast, live from WMNF in Tampa, offers a chronicle of the march and an overview on the plight of migrant farm workers in the South, with interviews with farm workers, student allies, company spokespersons, and top government officials.
