Every year, thousands of migrant workers leave their homes in Mexico and elsewhere to toil in U.S. farm fields and packaging plants to help feed America. These stories show how employers can endanger or abuse workers. The first story uncovered that officials at a green bean canning plant and government regulators failed to take critical measures to protect migrant workers after they started to test positive for COVID-19. The story revealed that eleven workers died –or 1 in 14 of all migrant employees at the plant. It was likely the deadliest workplace outbreak reported in the U.S. food industry by then.
