“As we sit down for Thanksgiving this week, a lot of us, thanks to the pandemic, are farther from our families than we would like.

  1. thank you farm workers for keeping us alive.

  2. I appreciate everything they do! They make way more than me and I am an essential worker!

    • @Baybarb27 I didn’t say they didn’t deserve any praise, pls read my comment again… I make less than that and work under extreme stress providing people with electricity, propane, wood and utilities… Imagine someone freezing in their house with kids and it’s up to me to get them heat for their home.. now try to imagine about 50 of those all at once.. I am not saying they work harder than I do.. what I am saying there is something wrong with the system and wages where we make chump change and work in these conditions. I love my job, but not anybody can do it..

    • @jlbueno0611 Don’t assume you know what you’re talking about,, because you don’t..

    • @Toni Martin re read my comment, do it slowly,take your time understanding it… 💁🏻‍♂️

    • @jlbueno0611 yes re-read it… and still you have no idea what I do .. and what you’re talking about with my work. pls explain….

    For every person driving around in a $50,000 car and earning $80,000 a year in your beautiful home – watch this video and whine that ‘people are stealing your job.’ I dare you.

    • @h k Democrats love socialism, always have.

    • @David Schlessinger show me a school bus driver driving around in a $50,000 car on a $80,000 above average salary living in a beautiful house. Your link doesn’t even support your original comment.

      @ako tairi That’s because I was responding to the sentiment about the person’s question and not the original comment. And please don’t even try to claim sticking to the original comment matters anymore, moron. You started bringing up China’s efforts during the Clinton years, Obama and an opioid epidemic, Imbecile. You’re all over the place. Please, stick to making sand castles.


    • @ako tairi oh, really? then how come I don’t see any of the Republican politicians be saying “i don’t like this free socialized healthcare Im getting. Im gonna pay for it on my own”?

  7. Trump’s Essential in Golf games Only…

  8. We need to sacrifice ourselves for a minute and not be so selfish. God bless America 🙏

  9. Kudos Chris. You’re covering some important stories these days.

    Very very hard workers. The kind Trump does not want to shake hands with. They all do a job that no one else wants to. Thank you for your hard work.

    Forgotten Heroes. Meanwhile The Senate is on break. Wake up people, Wake up!

  12. If Americans knew the truth they wouldn’t discriminate as much as they do, and throughout history most of the hate comes from politicians both sides

  13. Slavery was never abolished, they just changed the way they went about it. When you work full time for a non livable wage it’s slavery.

  14. Kudos for mentioning the invisible workers in the USA Chris.

  15. Chris is right. No farm workers no produce in stores or restaurants etc. I didn’t even think of that. Wow.

    • Really, how did you think your veggies end up in our grocery stores ? WOW !

    • @Gypsy Gypsy farm workers along with hospital staffers getting it first. Farm workers are triple essential.

    • @Lovely Day
      100% I’m 58 I remember working out in the grape vineyards 9-10 yrs old we only did it for one season, never again. RESPECT TO MY LATIN BROTHERS AND SISTERS…..

    • Scott Dougherty | November 25, 2020 at 11:21 PM | Reply

      And no food of any kind. with out those farm workers the grocery store shelves would be empty. They do it all

  16. If republicans can’t even wear a mask out of respect for the first responders they claim to care so much about….they ain’t gonna spare a single thought on latino workers harvesting their turnips.

    • And is that your personal excuse for why we shouldn’t do anything? Or corporate propaganda you’ve been sold, about how prices just go up if people are paid well… Prices go up because corporations inflate them deliberately every year to gouge customers for more money every year, on average five percent, and wages haven’t gone up to match them in my lifetime.

      I’m in my mid forties and I made more economic buying power as a teenager in pay back when wages were three dollars an hour, and someone working full time could rent a room on that…

      Now multiple people share single bedroom apartments on minimum wage for lifetimes, because people claim its too hard to pay a living wage.

      Wal-Mart for example pays minimum wage to millions of workers who get part time jobs because they don’t hire for full time, no benefits because they’re part time, and their employees need government assistance programs to get by… That’s paid for by taxpayers…

      Amazon is just as bad. Besos makes trillions, while his workers can’t ever save up for a down payment on a house.

  17. America’s national food security depends on immigrant workers that do hard jobs from13 to 15 hour work days to keep us fed affordably.

    • It actually is possible to pay them decent wages without food prices skyrocketing… the farmworkers’ pay has hardly any effect on the crop price to the consumer.

    Here’s a thought: people like these good farmers should be getting a CEO’s pay because they feed the nation.

  19. who is taking whos job??? Who else is lining up for these jobs???

  20. Many of these are the “gangsters, rapists, and drug dealers” that Trump and his GOP wanted to protect America from. Most of us wouldn’t last a single day doing that work and these are the people Trump and his spoiled brats look down on and consider themselves superior to.
