In the shade of leafy trees, migrant farm workers stood on
ladders Tuesday morning, filling buckets with juicy cherries.
It was like many days in the past few weeks, but with one
obvious exception: Men and women with notepads and state
identification badges moved through the trees, asking the workers
about wages and water.
