3. Action Alert: Contact Trader Joe’s re: Farm Worker’s Death
Trader Joe’s two-dollar wine has been linked to the tragic death of a 17-year-old vineyard worker. Working for 8 hours straight in the scorching heat without shade or water, Maria Isabel Vasquez Jimenez suffered a heat stroke while she was working under a labor contractor for Bronco Winery, best known for their Charles Shaw wines.
Food Empowerment Projects joins with the United Farm Workers to urge you to contact Trader Joes and demand that they implement a policy that ensures suppliers provide workers with cold water, clean bathrooms and shaded areas.
Your voice can make a difference! Back in 2001, the animal rights organization, Viva!USA campaigned against Trader Joe’s for carrying factory-farmed duck meat. After several months of grassroots organizing and actions by volunteers, Trader Joes cleaned the shelves of all duck meat products.
Now is the time for action. Please contact Trader Joe’s by sending a letter through the UFW’s website: http://www.ufwaction.org/campaign/2buckchuck
Again, we can use our food choices to change the world and fight oppression!
