Raul Merino, 26, originally from Oaxaca, Mexico, in the red hat, demonstrates with fellow migrant workers employed by Sakuma Brothers Farms at worker housing in Skagit Valley, Wash. on Wednesday. Three camps of Sakuma workers, who are striking, said management told them this morning to accept their current wage or face eviction. The workers then blocked the road from worker housing to the highway to make the statement they keep want to negotiating with management.
