New video highlights dairy workers’ stories of sexual harassment & new ways you can help.
Farm workers are making today a national day of action in support of dairy workers!
Today Washington state dairy workers who milk the cows that supply many Starbucks with milk are having a “Day of Action” to call attention to their plight. These workers have faced sexual harassment, tragic accidents, wage theft, and other abuses. Many of these workers have even been retaliated against for speaking out and some have even been sued.
We’re hearing reports from friends all over the US and even Mexico who have taken action to help these dairy workers. Won’t you help too? Even if you have helped, can you take the next step? Let’s give Starbucks a strong message that as a major buyer of Darigold products, they MUST take social responsibility for the products they use to make profits from.
