Two McDonald's Deals
In the same article referenced above, The New York Times reports that McDonald's has agreeed to pay an additional penny-per-pound for the Florida-grown tomatoes that adorn your Big Mac. This is pursuant to an agreement negotiated between McDonald's and the Coalition of Immokalee Workers. The deal was negotiated at the Carter Center in Atlanta and is expected to increase farm workers' pay from 40 cents to 72 cents per 32-pound bucket of tomatoes.
