Farmworkers have long endured sub-poverty wages, denial of fundamental labor rights, and—in the most extreme cases—modern-day slavery.

But historic changes are underway. McDonalds, Subway, Whole Foods and six other companies have all signed Fair Food Agreements with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, dawning a new day in the agricultural industry.

But Publixʼs refusal to participate threatens to undermine these landmark yet fragile gains.

Please join Immokalee tomato pickers and their families in urging Publix to join the Fair Food program: Commit its buying power to farms that comply with the Fair Food Code of Conduct and pay a small fair-trade premium to help lift harvesters’ income a penny per pound!!!
