Get involved in the Second Annual International Food Workers Week

Food Chain Workers Alliance has launched the Second Annual International Food Workers Week!

 

International Food Workers Week (IFWW) is this week, November 24-30, 2013! IFWW brings awareness to the issues facing food workers, supports their organizing efforts for fair, sustainable jobs and promotes solidarity among workers all across the food chain.  In the U.S. alone, nearly 20 million men and women grow, harvest, produce and serve the food that we eat each day. Yet the majority of workers earn poverty wages and work without healthcare and other benefits. That’s why workers across the food system are joining in solidarity to change our food system to one that is just and fair for all!

 

This Thanksgiving week, FCWA urges you to learn, reflect and take action to support food workers and make our food system one we can be proud of!

Food Chain Workers Alliance (FCWA) has put together some ways you can support food workers during IFWW:
