Farmworkers in Immokalee Florida have won concessions from retail outlets and from tomato growers in recent years. But they are still perusing fair wages and working conditions. This week they’re on a road trip from Boston to Tampa.

The Coalition of Immokalee Workers’ tour ends in Tampa this week.
