Human Rights Watch is out with a disturbing report about hundreds of
thousands of children picking fruits and vegetables on U.S. farms.
According to the report, they work 10 or more hours a day with sharp
tools, heavy machinery, and dangerous pesticides, and die at four
times the rate of other working youths.
Please take action and spread the word: http://www.hrw.org/en/support-care
It's also important to note that farm workers in the Central Valley
can barely afford to feed their kids and don't have access to the very
fruits and vegetables they break their backs to pick. Unemployment in
the Central Valley is over 20 percent.
