As You Enjoy the Bounty of #USA Food Production, Think About #WeFeedYou & United Farm Workers

I created a Twitter Moment from some of the United Farm Workers‘s status updates with the hashtag #WeFeedYou. As I went through these tweets, I thought about all the products that end up on my table which are mentioned: cilantro, sugar cane, apples, mushrooms, celery, lettuce, chicken, grapes, pomegranates, artichokes and bell peppers. Of course, since I don’t grow any food, everything I eat has been harvested, processed, transported and sold to me by workers. These workers, just like I do, have families. They have health issues. They have hopes for themselves and their children. They smile. And, whatever some know-nothing politicians says, they have skills! Don’t let bosses make all the money off of these workers. Support agricultural labor.
