Whatcom Democrats Stand with Sakuma Berry Workers

Submitted by Riley Sweeney on Fri, 2013-08-09 09:25

The Whatcom County Democratic Party stands strong with the workers at Sakuma Brothers Berry Farm. We are very concerned that the farmworkers are reporting untenable living conditions and wages far below Washington State minimum wage. We strongly believe that all workers are entitled to a safe work environment, the right to organize, and a fair livable wage. We affirm workers’ right to fair treatment, living wages and collective bargaining.

Some ideas for the baskets are local wines, chocolate, coffee and smoked salmon. Home-made items such as jams and jellies are also welcome. If you have a talent for baking special desserts, you might consider giving a certificate for a dessert to be made at a later date when requested by the winner.
