Why aren't you revolted yet?
Everybody should watch this Utube video from Al Jazeera's Inside USA. And note that the farm workers conditions elsewhere (Poles in the UK, Brazilians in Brazil, Syrians in Lebanon, Egyptians in Jordan) are no better but, while we know some about the UK and Brazil (mostly through NGOs work) nobody talks about the ones in the Arab World. Farm workers in Lebanon are not unionized, and there are very few studies on their condition. Why? Simple, they are not Lebanese, and they are not urban, so how could researchers and NGOs notice them?
