Description

People come to the United States for many reasons. A job, school, or family; regardless of the reasoning, they deserve safety and respect. But the conditions that many people find themselves in are, at minimum uncomfortable and, at worst, life-threatening.

Women face the brunt of the abuse and are exposed to sexual assault, lower pay, chemical exposure, sickness, and other significant issues that they face every day. 

“For these women, workplace exploitation is the rule — not the exception,”

Several organizations are working to protect migrants and center their voices in this fight for fair and safe working conditions. Below are links to learn more from organizations like The United Farmworkers of America, Familias Unidas or la Justicia, and the Domestic Fair Trade Organization. 

I created these posters and stickers to raise awareness and inspire others to research the food they eat, and make choices that will lift us all up.

95% of US farmworkers are from Central America, and a little over half have legal status. What all these workers have in common are low wages, dangerous conditions, child-labor sexual harassment, sickness, chemical exposure, abuse, and even death. Understanding the roots of farm labor in the United States leads to a better understanding of the invisibility and terrible conditions in the modern age. Agriculture labor was supplied by slaves, and because they were unpaid and seen as property, it set the tone for agricultural work to this day - invisible and therefore able to abuse. Organic Farms are not spared the criticism - many have been found to subject their workers to terrible working conditions - like Glaser Organic Farms, whose produce ends up in Whole Foods and other stores.
