This has always been a thing. I have a friend who grew up on a strawberry field and she has told me stories about how difficult it was to to even make a living and try to save to leave the farm for something better

@FriedChicken I wish I could help the situation somehow but the system is so messed up I don’t even know how to help

This is pretty shitty of them to treat these people like animals. Governor Newsom needs to look into this and make changes! He hasn’t been the best lately. This is truly heart breaking

What makes you think that he's not aware of these conditions already ? He's lived in California for years.. Everybody with any common sense know that these conditions exist, they just don't care is all.. Newsom doesn't care either..

In the 90s farmworkers were found to be living in caves near Watsonville. In Salinas older farmworker housing is amazingly shoddy, but it's all many can get because their itinerant careers don't build traditionally acceptable renter records.

I cleaned up a homeless encampment in the hills behind these farms. There were kids and babies living there. Back packs with hw was left behind. Kids clothing, cooking utensils, strollers, and baby food. I've cleaned other camps but this one had working people living there and no drug addicts no beer cans. This is why they want open borders. They want workers who will accept $7 below minimum wage. Certain industries will collapse if they cannot continue this illegal practice. I know many students that would accept that job at minimum wage. But they won't hire them bc they rather save money by breaking the law.

The people in Half Moon Bay are progressive and have been for decades. Now that this mistreatment is coming to light, you can be sure that they will act to correct these deplorable conditions - and even this systematic cruelty. It is surprising that former Governor Jerry Brown, as well as local congress persons, did not do anything to stop this terrible situation. Gavin Newsom will not let this go on.

By the time officials are done, these workers will have a long commute from similar living conditions paid for out of their own pockets.

God is watching, all that matters. All will be judged, life is not forever unless you are given eternal life which I doubt most humans will. I can’t stand disgusting idiots who prioritize their own egos instead of being humans and giving people love and fair treatment. Rich ppl are the most entitled and most likely will burn in hell.

This is funny. It's never been a secret. Everyone knows even the governor. I don't see him getting on the news and talking about it. He tweeted or sent an internet post. Let's see if some legal charges will go down on these farm owners. Lmao and we all know nothing's going to happen to him. They're going to continue to do this. Pay them undivable check

The governor Newsome is in on it. He's the biggest importer of these workers.

When we go to the local supermarket, some of the food there was pick by migrant farmworkers AND generations of farmworkers have always been living in ragged housing. What's new?

This should not be news. It is something that should not surprise anyone. If the shooting had not occurred, it would be crickets.

My prayer goes out to the victims and their families. I have a problem with the guy who said that Americans don’t want to do this type of farm work. That is not true. There are many young people that would gladly do these type of farmer jobs. What will not occur and will not be accepted are low wages and deplorable working conditions. No matter how advanced we get as country and with technology, farming and agriculture will always be needed.

Nothing is stopping young people from working in agricultural work now. The only reason they are not out there breaking their back is because they don't want to.

Funny how Gavin now wants people think he cares about these people. At best he is a good alcoholic maybe he should have stuck to it.

Healthy years I was Contracting a with with the understanding that if they didn't have a Social Security card they weren't going to be employed in California and that it was illegal to hire illegal immigrants is that still the case?

Bottom line- how much rent are they paying? If it’s free, beggars can’t be choosers.

Looks like homeless camp though. I wouldn't pay rent for that
