Chris Hayes just did a segment on farm workers.

Without them we would indeed be up shit creek. Bravo Chris.

4. it was 75 cents per bucket and the fastest guy could do 25 buckets

per hour . do its 25x.75= 18.75 an hour. Of course most workers wont be as fast.

5. Excellent

story, farm workers are very valuable and should be acknowledged for their hard work. Andrew Zimmern did those specials on MSNBC (What's Eating America) and focused on those migrant workers. We need to thank those workers who put food on our tables.

50 million Americans are suffering from lack of food.

6. I just read Zimmern's

tweets from the past week. He has helped restaurant and farm workers so much since Covid started. His tweets are about politics, the food industry, and cooking ideas/recipes. I just posted an article about the first REAL Thanksgiving that he posted earlier today. I wish I had some of that info when I was teaching my 1st graders about the holiday.
