FARMWORKERS FASTFOOD

** ADVANCE FOR WEEKEND OF MAY 6-7 ** Farmworkers pick tomatoes at Taylor & Fulton Tomatoes Thursday, March 30, 2006, in Immokalee, Fla. The Coalition of Immokalee Workers' came to prominence in the 1990s by championing a series of farmworker abuse cases and by organizing a four-year boycott of Taco Bell that ended in 2005 after the restaurant agreed to pay Florida farmworkers an extra penny a pound for its tomatoes. Now it has its sights set on the entire fast-food industry, starting with the giant of giants, the McDonald's Corp. The coalition wants McDonald's to increase wages, improve working conditions and give tomato pickers a greater voice in their future. (AP Photo/Luis M. Alvarez)
