A call for support to farm workers

This letter was forwarded to me by Alternet as part of their newsfeed:

Dear Friend,

Tell Burger King to improve
farmworker wages.
Farmworkers who pick tomatoes for Burger King earn 40 to 50 cents for every 32-pound bucket of tomatoes they pick, a rate that has not risen significantly in nearly 30 years. Workers who labor from dawn to dusk must pick two tons of tomatoes to earn $50 in one day. Recently, McDonalds and others have agreed to higher wages for these workers, but Burger King has not.

Tell Burger King to improve farmworker wages.
