Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realize we cannot eat money. Cree Indian Proverb
With all the reading I have done and all the history and news there is one overwhelming message that stands out.
Food gets people’s attention.
From the pickers to that packers to the delivery trucks to the servers to the sellers to the processors and on and on, the food industry has the lowest payed people with some of the longest and most horrendous working conditions. And very few – if any – benefits. And yet the rich are wholly dependent on it. The lower classes have had to learn to help one another in this way and find some other ways to get food at times.
A large scale strike of all who are involved in the food industry as workers I think would attract some attention. And if we could get the small local farmers on our side, they could help those who are effected that are not part of the …um…problem.
It would have to be well coordinated but I think that this is one area that would cause more than a bit of a stir even on Wall Street.
Something to think about, I believe.
