At a time when more elected officials are turning their attention to income inequality in this country, increasing corporate tax breaks is no way to address it. Workers and their families are struggling to make ends meet. Communities are broken.
Their stories sound the same, with small variations, punctured by half sentences, and words such as fear, "had to flee," "on the road for four days," "could not take anything with us," "husband left behind," "life turned upside down."
This organic nonsense has to stop. I'd like to request that those who don't know agriculture cease stoking a divisive debate that misses the heart of the problem: We're not sure how we should grow food, and thus we're not sure how to eat.
