Court: Farm workers entitled to nearly $2 million

"A federal appeals court has awarded nearly $2 million to more than 600 Latino farm workers who accused a farm labor contractor and two Yakima Valley growers of violating federal labor laws. The local farm workers claimed that Valley Fruit Orchards and Green Acre Farms illegally and intentionally displaced them by hiring Los Angeles-based Global Horizons to bring in workers from Thailand in 2004."
