Tent cities housing migrant workers in Spain

This video shows the conditions that many migrant workers in Spain have to endure so that we can have vegetables that are cheap and fresh even when they are out of season.

We get the food we pay for. If that is what we decide we want from our food, then it is readily available in every supermarket and on the market stalls. But maybe price isn’t the only consideration. We might not see the suffering we inflict on people in another part of the world simply by choosing the food that is most readily available, but it is no less real for being easily hidden from view.
