The Slave Trade is Alive …..

cluelesstrophy

….. and most likely your local super market is supporting it without knowing it because they look for the cheapest produce. So the clueless trophy goes to buyers in the grocery store industry for keeping slavery alive.

We thought it was over a few hundred years ago ….. and that it wouldn’t happen at a sickening level in our country again. We were wrong. Whether it is happening to immigrants, illegal workers, or Americans themselves – it needs to be crushed soon.

We always hear about slavery still going on in other countries like Mexico ….. but not here.

Between greed and people wanting produce as low as possible, it’s back again. Here is an article from the Post-Gazette detailing what is going on in the Florida Tomato Picking industry.

People started a movement to buy fair-trade coffee from other countries ….. maybe we need to start a movement to buy fair-trade produce from ours.
