The O covers UFW/Beef Northwest at last
It’s old news for me, as I first wrote about this last August, but hey…nice to see the Oregonian has taken an interest in these farmworker happenings. My own September 07 interview with John Wilson, one of the family owners of Beef Northwest, is here. I remain agnostic on the issue, but I can say that United Farm Worker’s overt smear tactics on every possible avenue left a bad taste in my mouth–and eventually got me to unsubscribe from their email list. I was unclear: do they want to unionize the workers, or do they want to destroy the business so unionizing elsewhere will be easier? Anywhooooo.
