Monopoly in Immokalee

While I was on Facebook the other day, I found this political video about what Bernie Sanders has done for the families in Imokalee, Florida. I do not share this with the intentions of making any sort of political statement on here. I just realized Professor Alvarez had posted something about the Immokalee workers targeting Wendy’s, which you can read here!

I think this video really helps show just exactly what the workers in Immokalee are going through and rather than dehumanizing people, it shows that these ARE people too that are really struggling. It gives them a voice to be heard and has a powerful message. The Coalition of Immokalee Workers is really and it is still happening.

    We’ll be examining the plights of farm workers later in the semester, both in the USA and Mexico. It’s important to be aware of this though, it’s been a struggle in Florida for a long while, but a larger struggle across the Americas as large agri-business takes over small farms, forcing small farmers to work on large-scale farms, or plantations really.
