Call on Publix to help end Florida's harvest of shame!
By leveraging their high-volume purchasing power, corporations like Publix – with nearly $25 billion in sales in 2009 – play an active role in farmworker exploitation. Through its Campaign for Fair Food, the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW), a membership-led Florida farmworker organization, is changing this reality. The CIW has reached agreements with eight food industry leaders – including McDonald's, Subway and Whole Foods – to directly improve farmworker wages and working conditions and eliminate the poverty and powerlessness at the root of modern slavery.
Publix, however, has refused to similarly take responsibility.
