The CIW was started in 1993 and it is a community-based farmworkers organization. It represents mainly tomato workers and citrus pickers. Their aim is to improve the lives of these workers and protect their rights as people. So far, they have done a serious amount of good. They went straight to the corporations and demanded that they pay the workers who pick their products a penny more per pound. So far, many big corporations have signed the contract like Taco bell, Burger King, Whole Foods, Subway, Mcdonalds, Pizza Hut and many more. With continued awareness the CIW only expects to keep improving the farmworkers lives.
