Thousands of tomato Farm laborers are victims of modern day slavery today in the United States and Mexico.
Workers do not receive regular pay for work, Work seven days a week with no breaks. Workers are equipped with housing, often with many others and aren’t even paid enough to cover the cost of rent and food, so they have to pay with credit. On these farms women are often exploited. Through this system they are bound to the land with no way to escape.
