While reading this, I noticed it did not say what they died of? They suggest heat, but what does the autopsy show? I think we should see all the facts before we start pointing fingers and no I am not by any stretch of the imagination trying to protect farmers...........Especially since I have moved to California.

Noted and signed. All too often these workers are Mexican immigrants who work for next to nothing doing jobs that the average American deems beneath them. I purchase vegetables and fruits from these farms in the off seasons, when the farmers markets are closed, I live in CT,. These poor people need to be protected.
Thanks for the article...
