I just came out of Cronig's where organic strawberries were $15.37 a pint!!!! I didn't buy them. Just like last week when I was appalled that cherry tomatoes were seven something a pound.
I turn on NPR and the story is about how wages for MIGRANT PICKERS HASN'T INCREASED IN EIGHT YEARS !!!
So I didn't get the berries and I didn't get the tomatoes. Am I cutting my nose to spite my face? Who am I hurting? There is so much injustice in the world. I don't know how to justify little luxuries and big disparities.
HOW ARE YOU GUYS DOING IT?? Please write and tell me!!!
