Burger King announced on Friday (5/23/08) that it had reached an agreement to improve the wages and working conditions of tomato pickers in Florida.

**In 2007, members of Sojourners' list serv sent in more than 125,000 letters of protest to Burger King for their inhumane wages for tomato pickers**

At a news conference on Capitol Hill, the hamburger chain, based in Miami, said it would pay tomato prices adequate to give workers a wage increase of 1.5 cents a pound. A penny a pound will go into the workers' pockets. The extra half-cent is intended to cover additional payroll taxes and administrative costs for tomato growers.
