Findings from the “Milked” Report
Presenters at the Milked forum will share their findings based on interviews with 88 farmworkers across 53 farms in New York. After hearing about the working and living conditions of dairy farmworkers, you will hear what they are doing to fight back, and what you can do to help uplift these workers, including supporting their right to collective bargaining!
