Even the worst quality air, thick smoke and haze, due to the devastating fires in California, does not stop these amazingly hard working farmers from collecting peas. pic.twitter.com/KraGevUhSh— Vala Afshar (@ValaAfshar) May 22, 2021

Agricultural laborers are paid far too little—and we pay too little for food.— ✡️ for (@PFemme2) May 22, 2021
very, very grateful for this thread. as said somewhere in the replies, veganism is not devoid of exploitation. would love to see another thread exposing workers’ conditions within factory farms, too. both the animals and workers are met with pure cruelty. https://t.co/whUtGSIYb3
