|The Coalition of Immokalee Workers' (CIW) Campaign for Fair Food seeks to eliminate sweatshop conditions and modern-day slavery in the agricultural fields of the United States.|
Unprecedented victories have already been won against Taco Bell and McDonald's, in which both companies agreed to the CIW's demands for better wages and working conditions for farmworkers.
The Campaign has now set its sights on Burger King, and again student and youth organizing will play a major role in pressuring Burger King to address the documented human rights crisis in its supply chain.
