The Food Chain Workers Alliance this year released a groundbreaking report on the 20 million workers in the food system - The Hands That Feed Us: Challenges & Opportunities for Workers Along the Food Chain. Food workers make up 1/6 of the nation’s workforce, larger than any other segment of the economy. Come hear the results of the report and directly from food system workers who are organizing and taking on corporations to win better wages and working conditions and for a healthier, safer, more sustainable food system!
