Florida farmworkers have been working for a decade to get paid a penny more per pound when they pick tomatoes. Today their Campaign for Fair Food dream is a step closer to a universal reality. The Coalition of Immokalee Workers announced an agreement with Pacific Tomato Growers, one of the countryâ€™s largest tomato producers. They say it â€œsets new standards for social responsibility and accountability in Floridaâ€™s tomato industry.â€ Gerardo Reyes is a staff member with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers.
