ABOUT THE BOOK:
Migrant farmworkers are still routinely exploited, and in many cases held against their will in conditions of modern slavery. Yet in one Florida town, these workers have organized the Coalition of Immokalee Workers and launched a nation wide campaign to expose their inhuman working conditions that ultimately succeeded in bringing the biggest fast-food giants to their knees.
