Praise of the Day

Praise of the Day–to the migrant workers, those in the field, those picking and pulling and cutting our fruits and vegetables, to all the agricultural workers across the country, you have always ensured that our country has had access to healthy nutritious food; today, and each day, I not only praise the work that you do and the goods you provide, I take this moment to advocate for you.

Agricultural workers deserve more than a living wage and a word of thanks, they deserve safe working conditions and work protections–now, and when all of this is over, remember that these workers allowed us to have food on our tables, food in our fridges, and food in our stomachs.
