Boise, ID Protests Wendy’s Unfair to Farm Labor Practice

Posted by Ryan Hall

By John McMahon

Saturday 24 September Idaho Peace Coalition and Supporters of Farm Labor stood along a busy street in front of Wendy’s Hamburgers in Boise, Idaho to protest their apparent unwillingness to pay a fare wage to Farm Laborers in Florida; i.e. 1 cent more to harvest Tomatoes. This ‘street protest’ is a follow-up to our showing of Food Chains ‘The Revolution in America’s Fields’ on September 9th. Disparities in how Farm Workers and their Families are treated and how they are paid for work they perform reflects poorly upon our National commitment to the values we profess.

These are human, civil and equal rights concerns! We Americans must search our hearts to correct the deplorable conditions of life and livelihood that in some sectors of our society cry out for Justice! Without Justice, brought about with our commitment to equanimity, Peace is not possible.
