COVID-19, Agriculture Workers and Our Food System

Authors:

The Midwest Center for Investigative Reporting and USA TODAY Network are collaborating on a project to examine COVID-19's impact on the underpaid and exploited agricultural workforce, particularly those in the meatpacking industry and the migrant workers in the fields. The reporting will go beyond spot news and, over the next six months, dig into the fundamental and systemic flaws in an industry that has historically imperiled its labor force.
