Al Jazeera Op-Ed: How foodies can become champions for workers' rights

Melanie Wong | Nov 28, 2013 01:00 AM

"Will the prospect of small price increases sour consumers from making common cause with those who grow and prepare their food? Previous experience suggests otherwise. As food culture has taken hold, it has demonstrated that people are willing to pay more to have their food choices reflect their values. And FCWA advocates say that eaters knowledgeable about the benefits of fresh, sustainably grown food have shown enthusiasm for the principle that those who work most closely with food should be able to afford to eat organic too."
