Forced to Unionize? California Farmworkers Fight Their Union

Unknown - 2014
Rate this:
The United Farm Workers, which once boasted more than 50,000 dues-paying members, now claims fewer than 5,000. Yet with unionization in the industry on the decline, real wages have steadily increased. This documentary short follows the story of workers at Gerawan Farms, who have begun to protest-not against their employer, but against the union that claims to represent them and wants to take a percentage of their wages. The workers think their story highlights the problem of a highly regulated labor market in which politics, not market forces, calls the shots and determines winners and losers.
