As one of our members says,
“I’m 25 yrs old, but my body feels much older…how will I take care of my children when they are older, and my body is broken down.When my body’s all used up, they’ll dispose of me (fire me or deport me). I’ve been coming here to pick berries since I was 14. I’m 25 now. This company has taken my youth, and it will take my children’s youth.”
We’re not just here for the stoop labor, we are part of the community.
We deserve to live long and healthy lives too, so we can see our children and grandchildren grow up healthy."
