The Coalition of Immokalee Workers held rallies nationwide on Wednesday to urge the fast food chain Chipotle to enter into an agreement ensuring humane working conditions for farmworkers harvesting tomatoes sold inside its restaurants. The Immokalee Workers’ campaign has already won “Fair Food Agreements” from chains including Subway, McDonald’s and Burger King. The protests come one day after thousands of workers rallied in New York City to call for an increase to the U.S. minimum wage, which has remained at $7.25 for the past three years.
