HeadlineMay 15, 2024

In Florida, at least eight migrant farmworkers from Mexico died in a bus accident as they headed to work on a watermelon farm. Forty other farmworkers were injured. The accident occurred when a truck collided with the bus carrying the workers. The driver of the truck has been arrested and charged with driving under the influence-manslaughter. In a statement, the Farmworker Association of Florida said, “Farmworkers tend to be forgotten, but it’s important not to forget farmworkers, especially during such difficult times.”
