1. The Insight Garden Program's Vegetable Garden at San Quentin State Prison


    from Wiley Rogers Added 56.2K 24 0

    The Planting Justice team worked with Beth Waitkus and the Insight Garden Program to build four raised beds on the grounds of the H-Unit at San Quentin State Prison — one of the only sanctioned vegetable gardens in California. Over four days, men enrolled in the Insight Garden Program helped break up asphalt on the prison grounds to make way for the new vegetable garden and put in some much-needed hard work on the construction of the perimeter fence, filling the beds with over 10 yards of compost, mulching the area surrounding the beds, and planting them up with young vegetables and herbs.

                    from Migrant Rights Centre Ireland Added

                    Do Irish restaurant-goers know the human cost of their meals? We believe Irish consumers care not only about what they eat, but where they eat, in terms of the pay and conditions of the workers who cook and serve their food. Food for Thought is a short social justice film sharing the experiences of low-wage migrant restaurant workers, in the context of the precarious work immigrants and low-wage workers are increasingly doing in recession Ireland. The film weaves together workers’ stories and interviews with trade unionists and economists reminding us that exploitation is bad for workers and bad for business. Also featured are a number of fair employers, who share an important message that it is possible to run a profitable business, abide by the law, and treat your workers with dignity and respect. The film is informed by research MRCI carried out in 2012 with 120 migrant restaurant workers, which identified non-compliance and exploitation as ongoing concerns in this sector. Visit http://www.mrci.ie/our-work/work-labour-migration/ for more information and to join the fight for rights, empowerment, and justice for low wage workers and migrants.
