human rights of farmworkers!
Sign the online petition here: Trader Joe's: sign the Fair Food
The trendy natural grocer Trader Joe's has a reputation for being ethical
and progressive. But behind the veneer is an ultra-secretive
by one of the richest
people in the world
the social impact of its purchasing
order to maximize its profits.
The true face of Traitor Joe's is revealed by the corporation's refusal to
work with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers
<http://www.ciw-online.org/>to improve the wages and working
conditions of farmworkers who harvest the
tomatoes it buys. Instead of signing an Fair Food Agreement, which companies
from Whole Foods to McDonald's have
Traitor Joe's has spread
unverifiable and have no way to be enforced.
According to recent press
Trader Joe's plans to open stores in Colorado as early as April. We need
to send a strong signal to Trader Joe's that Coloradans demand that it sign
an Fair Food Agreement with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, and it will
face protest and public pressure until it does.
