TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Gov. Crist says he wants to work with
the workers to ensure they are paid and treated fairly.
Crist met Wednesday with farmworkers from Immokalee to talk about slavery and the labor conditions of southwest Florida's tomato harvesters.
Gerardo Rayes said workers talked with Crist about low wages and the need to be paid fairly.
Crist said after the meeting that he believes the Immokalee workers are not being treated with dignity by their employers and that he will not tolerate injustice or arrogance.
