Don't count on it. Here at the Live Oak complex they're passing more costs and worst, more liability to the grower. The catch crews will now be paid by the farmers directly and will be liable for any injuries while on their farms.

It is getting worse not better.

Bigger doesn't always mean better. It seems when large corporations get involved with anything there is less for those that are actually doing the work in order to satisfy stockholders and corporate executives.

One can only speculate about the magnitude of a merger that would awaken the Justice Department; simply amazing and inexplicable. Apparently it is not a Democrat or Republican issue, just one of money.

I was told by Pilgrim growers in Arkansas they had to take a pay cut.
