I was recently reading an NY Times article documenting the utterly dreadful working conditions endured by labourers in the Florida tomato growing industry, when an unexpected thing happened.
I discovered that a roll-call of companies generally regarded as highly exploitative and of dubious ethical character - McDonald's, Burger King, KFC, etc. - had gone ahead and finally signed an agreement with the Florida Tomato Growers Exchange which, according to the Times, begins to address the most significant ou...
