About a year ago I had the chance to attend a panel after a showing of Food, Inc. attended by one of the leaders of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers. Thankfully, NPR has jumped on this story and expanded it from a local labor issue to a national topic, fleshing it out on Fresh Air and Florida Matters. Even going so far as to compare the inability to prosecute for the same crimes in Florida that regularly get prosecuted in California, which has a much higher population of farm workers despite the lower incidence of labor abuse.
