Farm Job Mystery Solved

In previous posts, I have pointed out how farm payrolls are increasing despite the claims of water exporters who want to relax Delta environmental protections.

From the New York Times on the March for Water.

Many of the protesters were paid by their employers to march in lieu of harvesting crops. In reality, this is not a farm worker march,” said Arturo Rodriguez, president of the United Farm Workers of America, the 27,000-member union founded by César Chávez, which did not participate in the march. “This is a farmer march orchestrated and financed by growers.”
