Apr 05, 2005
Churches that endorsed a boycott against Taco Bell have declared victory after the fast-food giant agreed to increase payments to migrant tomato pickers in Florida. Taco Bell agreed to a penny-per-pound increase in wages.
The agreement announced March 8 between Taco Bell’s parent company, Yum Brands, and the Coalition of Immokalee Workers ends the boycott.
