Industrial food system of the United States
Some other questions to bear in mind: What does this story tell us about the industrial food system of the United States as it existed in 1960? What do you think might have changed since this film was made? What do you think might have become of these workers and their families after 1960? And (since we are studying social movements regarding food), what do you think are the conditions, favorable or unfavorable, for social movements that might address some of the workers’ concerns? How might their lives have improved?
