SHOULD PEOPLE DIE FOR YOUR DINNER TABLE ?:
Every year agricultural workers die in the fields of California because of heat stroke. Through the efforts of the United Farm Workers the State of California has passed new heat regulations that are supposed to protect workers labouring under these conditions. The trouble is that growers often ignore these regulations and the State is more than lax in enforcing them. The UFW has initiated a campaign to petition the Cal-OSHA to actually apply their regulations with some regularity.
