Felix Garza, SCNA, of the National Farm Worker Ministry shares the following story from Ohio Valley ReSource.
Workers on a tobacco farm in Garrard County, Kentucky, are entering the third week of a strike over claims that they have not received the pay guaranteed by a federal work visa program. The strike is part of a movement across the South and Midwest to organize migrant laborers who enter the country legally to do seasonal work.
The farmers chanted in Spanish as they marched to deliver a letter to the farm owner.
“Que queremos? Justicia!”
The farmer, Wayne Day, wasn’t home.
