If you've ever bought table grapes for yourself or your family, I think you need to know this...
Right now Giumarra Vineyard Corporation's - the country's leading table grape company - is forcing California farmworkers to endure humiliations and abuse I really didn't think still existed in this country.
They've forced workers to "race" through searing 100 degree heat to see who can pick the most grapes - and then fired the "losers." Their foremen scream at workers to produce more and give them unpaid "time-outs" if they dare to question supervisors. They deny workers water, shade, and breaks. Already two workers have died of heat-related causes in their fields.
These California farmworkers have been trying to fight back by forming a union, but they need help from the public to demand real change from Giumarra.
I just signed a petition to Giumarra demanding better treatment for these workers. Would you join me by signing the petition today?
