I believe that it is deplorable what has happened to this couple who were only attempting to help farm workers. What they accomplished is admirable and as long as farm worker’s injuries are short term acute injuries that result in total recovery, workers compensation is a good system for all workers, however if any worker’s injuries or disease is determined to have an unknown cause or the injury does not result in total recovery, farm workers will realize just like every other worker
that the system does not work and that there is a culture of denial. Farm workers like every other worker will be faced with poverty,  marital breakdowns, suicide and homicidal ideations when legitimate claims are turned down or farm workers are deemed to be able to perform some imaginary job and paid in imaginary earnings and then have their claim terminated.
