Cesar Chavez would be turning in his grave in view of today’s United Farm Workers union (UFW). Today's UFW bosses are known for bullying its members and suppressing its own workers. Gerawan farmworkers won an overwhelming vote to exit the UFW, after the UFW abandoned them for over two decades. As for its own organizers, the UFW was court ordered to pay almost $2 million in unpaid wages and penalties! Shame on the UFW! To learn more about who the UFW is today visit: http://pickjustice.com
