Publix humiliation: Workers, students fasting for fair food
On March 5, dozens of Florida farmworkers will stop eating. In a week-long Fast for Fair Food , they will sit on the grassy swards of Publix Supermarket headquarters in Lakeland, Florida, their weary bodies on display to the upper management of Florida's largest private corporation.

Who cares!!! Let them starve. PUBLIX DOES NOT PAY THESE PEOPLE'S WAGES!!!!! This is nothing but pure extortion by the Coalition of Immokalee Workers. Don't cave Publix. The people are behind you.

Publix humiliation? What A-hole wrote that headline? We are behind Publix. The immigration service needs to go check some green cards here. This is pure BS.

Let them lay around all they wish. That's the problem, they want to get paid for laying around! I agree with Lisa, check their green cards.If they want a more comfortable place to lay, try Obama's lawn!

This is really screwed up. Why are they protesting Publix? Publix doesnt employ them. Sounds like a typical liberal union tactic. Find a big pot of money and try to weasel your way into some of it. Unions suck. Why doesnt Sheriff Judd go in there and start rounding up some illegals? I'm shopping at Publix this week.
