Episode Description

Tune in when Patricia interviews Margaret Gray, Assoc. Professor of Political Science at Adelphi University and author of Labor and the Locavore: The Making of a Comprehensive Food Ethic. Margaret Gray sheds light on the plight of farmworkers that supply beautiful, delicious locally grown fruits and vegetables, locally crafted cheeses, baked goods, and more to upscale eateries, thriving farmers’ markets, and ultimately our dinner plates. With Labor and the Locavore, she calls attention to the realities and responsibilities that come with eating local, including how farmers are faced with fierce competitive pressures and financial burdens, so they depend on cheap labor, with no overtime wages, no sick days, lack of health benefits, and workers who fear firing if they complain. Beyond exposing the problems, Gray offers practical, appealing solutions.
