Happy Thanksgiving! All of us should thank farmworkers

While Thanksgiving may look different this year, at least one thing will remain unchanged: Migrant farmworkers continue to ensure that food reaches our tables. They’re doing essential work in spite of the disproportionate impact the pandemic has had on them and continued hostility from the Trump administration, which earlier this month moved to freeze the wages of H-2A workers for the next two years at their current pay, according to NPR’s Dan Charles. The administration estimates that change will yield workers $170 million less in wages annually.
