Trader Joe's Project

  • what it's like to work as a tomato picker in Florida 
    The work is really hard and painful. They usually work in horrible conditions and for little pay. 
  • the problem with buying tomatoes from Trader Joe's
    Trader Joe's has refused to boycott companies that make it possible for these conditions to continue. The workers would like one cent more per bucket of tomatoes.
  • what we can do about it 
    We can boycott Trader Joe's and write letter to the CEO. It's not fair for working people to earn less than minimum wage.
