  1. PROTECT THE FARM WORKER, they feed us all! I have been there and we know the conditions are not great and do not get me started on housing conditions. Take vaccines to the farm workers!!

    1. 100%, and something we could, and should, all agree on. Trump recognized their importance, let’s hope that mentality continues.

    2. Truth-seeker but not agree with you more my God they are handling our food that will eventually end up on our dinner tables or breakfast tables or even lunch dear God how can you deny and in a pandemic people the right to live and not spread the disease this is one of the most stupid things I have ever heard from Republicans I’ve heard a lot I’m stupid things and laws

  2. Dolores Huerta is a Civil Rights Farm worker’s HERO She’s marched next to Caesar Chavez and been a pioneer in human rights since the 1960’s.

    1. @Freedom Bow-ner
      That’s nice. You’re just making random snarky, little remarks to amuse yourself? Lol

  3. Don’t worry Dolores, Since Trump took office, direct aid to farms has grown from $11.5 billion in 2017 to more than $32 billion this year. This year’s funding is an all-time high 🙂

    1. @V call it whatever you want, but why don’t you mention where that “welfare” money comes from instead of being negative? 🙂

  4. Expect first step tomorrow. Going all the way is the only way to ensure family safety. Can not go back.

    1. Farmwork is definitely essential. You have food on your table because of farm workers. Automatic farms will put millions of people around the world out of jobs and the line of poverty will keep dropping lower and lower. It’s hard work but people need these jobs to live, they are human too.

    2. @Monique Barber I can’t tell if you’re joking or you’re just too embarrassed to respond properly

  5. My first job when I was 12 yrs old was picking peppers. I got 30 cents a bushel. I didn’t make a lot of money on the farm, but I was grateful that I didn’t work in the pumpkin patch. We were all white kids in 1980.

  6. My heart goes to every farmer workers, I prayer they are treated equally for the hard work they do to provide food on the table for all USA CITIZENS. God Bless.

  7. The farm workers union have been working for a long time defending their rights and Mrs. Dolores Huerta have been around since joining Mr. Cesar Chavez in fighting for fair wages and working conditions for the UFW union.

  8. Jesus loves and cares about you so much so repent so That we all make it to heaven.

    Like so more people can see this.

  9. What a powerful message on all levels about the farm workers needing to be vaccinated, the equal rights amendment and the leadership of Chavez and Huerta. The video of how hard and how fast the workers have to work is quite stunning. A good reminder to us to given the workers their due. Thank you, Lawrence O’Donnell!

  10. Imagine what they get paid and what people will pay for fruits and vegetables at a high dollar restaurant
