On the May 18th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Sanjay Rawal, director of Food Chains, a documentary that focuses on the plight of tomato pickers in Immokalee, Florida, and their battle with the $4 trillion global supermarket industry and fast food companies. Farmworkers are among the lowest paid workers in the US. How are they organizing for fair wages and how can we support them? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar.
