Protest Chipotle chain treatment of Florida farmworkers

If you patronize Chipotle (or even if you don't) you'll want to send this letter to the restaurant chain's CEO regarding the treatment of Florida farmworkers who pick the tomatos, etc. that are served at the restaurant.

Here's some information from Take Action:
Chipotle, how about some integrity for Florida's farmworkers?
For decades, Florida's farmworkers have faced terrible abuses and brutal exploitation. Workers earn sub-poverty wages for toiling 60-70 hours per week, and some have even been chained to poles, locked inside trucks, beaten, and robbed of their pay.

Chipotle, the country's fastest-growing fast food chain, claims to serve "food with integrity." But the company has turned its back on farmworkers demanding a lasting commitment to ending the brutal exploitation in Florida's fields.

Add your name to the open letter to Chipotle CEO Steve Ells demanding real "food with integrity" and an end to horrific working conditions.
