Badge / button

Item no. 24144
Collection: Private

Issued by the United Farm Workers, this button urges support for the workers in the strawberry fields.  The "5c for Fairness" slogan refers to a formula for improving wages:  a study from the California Institute for Rural Studies calculated that a mere 5 cent raise in the cost of a pint of berries could pay for an 50% increase in the average workers' piece pay rate.

See the United Farm Workers' webpage for more information.
