Border Trip – Day 2

Visiting with Ollin Calli. Hearing the story of a female labor activist working with farmworkers. They organized for access to water and electricity then they tried to get a decent salary and recognition for the skilled nature of their work. And then the extra layer of recognizing women as leaders. “If it hadn’t been required to have a woman leader they would not have had one.” Though 60 percent of the farmworkers are women, women are just being recognized as leaders. Demands such as child care are being put on the table which is needed when people are making $11 a day.

Discussion of the vertical monopoly of the multinational company Driscoll which some of us have been boycotting. More examples of economic interdependence.
