Bud Antle & United Farm Workers

About This Item

KQED News report from a United Farm Workers office in the Salinas Valley on December 11th 1970, featuring an interview with a spokesman who explains in detail how corrupt agricultural labor systems in California and Mexico are designed to exploit workers. He also describes how their movement benefits from widespread grass roots support from ordinary American citizens, who organize activities in local communities. A representative of Bud Antle Inc. claims their dispute with local farm workers is jurisdictional and therefore the national boycott of their lettuce should end immediately. There are views of the Bud Antle shipping depot, followed by a brief glimpse of downtown Salinas.
