Farm Workers Are Still in the Fields. I'm so glad to see this article that our food will not be interrupted. I'm going to catch hell for this, but this is where the undocumented workers should be. We have this from the mayor of Los Angeles.
Earlier this month, Mayor Eric Garcetti assured worried Angelenos that food would still be arriving at stores and restaurants during the pandemic. “Supply chains are completely uninterrupted, and there’s no shortage of food,” he said. That assurance is possible thanks in part to the ceaseless efforts of California’s agricultural workers, tens of thousands of whom are still on the job in local fields.
Now some of the farms are taking steps to make sure the workers are kept healthy. But there is no unified code on this, and the Governor and local politicians needs to put that in place.
