    2         A resolution expressing support for the Coalition of

    9  across our nation, and
   10         WHEREAS, the average wage of migrant and seasonal
   11  farmworkers in the United States is $11,000, with the majority
   12  not receiving health insurance coverage and lacking many of the
   13  protections afforded other workers, and
   14         WHEREAS, a healthy and thriving agricultural industry in
   15  Florida must be built on sustainable systems and must not come
   16  at the expense of farmworkers and their families, and
   17         WHEREAS, the Coalition of Immokalee Workers and the
   18  Student/Farmworker Alliance are working tirelessly to raise
   19  awareness of the working conditions of Florida’s farmworkers and
   20  to promote agricultural standards and business practices that
   21  protect farmworkers and elevate the standing of Florida’s
   22  agricultural industry, NOW, THEREFORE,
   24  Be It Resolved by the Senate of the State of Florida:
   26         That the Senate supports the tireless efforts of the
   27  Coalition of Immokalee Workers and the Student/Farmworker
   28  Alliance in their efforts to raise awareness of the working
   29  conditions of Florida’s farmworkers.
