Labor in the Food System from Farm to Table

On the cover: Farmworker Pedro Casiano picks grapes to be dried in the sun for raisins in the Fresno, California, raisin district in 2007. He was working with his family in the vineyard during a furlough from the U.S. Army. He eventually signed up for six more years with the Army and served two tours in Iraq.
