Last week in Dearborn, Michigan the Restaurant Opportunities Center told Andiamo's Restaurant in no uncertain terms what they thought of the company. Andiamo's is being sued by its staff for over $125,000 in unpaid (stolen) wages. Thanks to ROC and the Food Chain Workers Alliance for the great video!

I’ll admit, I miss breaking the law. Not so long ago at a farm in New York’s Hudson Valley that will go unnamed, I used to fill up half-gallon mason jars of raw milk for a whopping $1.50. The milk was incredible; hours from the source, it was smooth, ultra-creamy, and everything a dairy connoisseur hopes and dreams about. Ah, memories.
Farmers were out in force in Madison, Wisconsin last week demanding an end to anti-competitive practices in the dairy industry. The Department of Justice held it's third "listening session" on corporate concentration in agriculture, this time focusing on the beleaguered dairy industry.
