Burger King Responds

Jul 31, 2020
Here’s more on Burger King from yesterday. The company didn’t receive the farm worker petitions calling for a penny more in pay per pound of tomatoes picked, which were left outside its Miami headquarters. But eventually the company distanced itself from the comments attributed to Grover: "We have a robust vendor code of conduct which mandates zero tolerance for worker exploitation and abuse, and we are open to any responsible suggestions for improvement," spokeswoman Denise Wilson said in a statement. "Comments attributed to Steve Grover do not reflect Burger King’s desire to find a way to assure decent wages and modern working conditions for the tomato harvesters in Immokalee." An Associated Press reporter who tried repeatedly to contact Grover said he didn’t return calls to his house and office.
