In the 1930s, several federal labor laws were passed to protect the rights of workers, except those of farmworkers. Even today, agricultural laborers do not have the national rights to organize a union, minimum wage or overtime pay. The Face of Hard Labor in North Carolina represents the continued struggle of the farmworker against workplace inequality in our state. 

Support equal workplace rights. 
Support the farmworker. 
Support an equal North Carolina.
