Summary: 

Most of us take it for granted that we won’t be directly exposed to toxic pesticides without our permission. West Coast’s new Pesticides and You booklets are resources for two groups that may not feel that they can complain about being exposed to pesticides: farm workers and tenants. There are three booklets in the series (the first two are available in English, Spanish and Punjabi).

Pesticides on the Farm outlines both legal and non-legal options available to farm workers to ensure that they are protected from pesticide exposure through their work. Pesticides on the Farm is available in English, Punjabi, and Spanish.
