"Lrn, Migrant farm workers often face grueling 12 hour days in the field during harvest season. Florida employs the most seasonal migrant farm workers of any state in the country. Agriculture's a big part of the state's economy, and Palm Beach County is the breadbasket of the state. Years long fight has led to a slight federal wage increase for H two a guest workers These of the workers who helped cultivate things like the squash the tomatoes and spices that you get the supermarket. Wendy Roads covered the story for the Palm Beach Post. And she joins us now, Wendy Great to have you. Hi. Thank you so much for having me So when the the lowest hourly pay rate now goes up, But let me help me understand? You know, with farm workers. How? How are they paid? So they're paid Well, it's a little farm workers is kind of like a general term right because there's migrant workers and seasonal workers in each to a workers, and they're all slightly different. So this affect the H two a workers. So these air workers that come into the United States from other come countries just on a temporary basis for a specific project, and the way that they're paid is that they have to get The hire of the local prevailing wages, the state's federal minimum wage or something called the adverse effect. Wait, wait. So in Florida. The highest of those is the adverse effect way Drake, which has just gone up from 11, 71 12 away per hour, So there's just a few different categories that officials look at, and they have to pay the highest of the three categories. And my understanding is that this battle did it start because a couple years ago, former Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia froze those wages, right? That's right. That's exactly what happened. And, um and so United Farm Workers union brought a lawsuit against the Department of Labor, which was just settled. Um so yeah, so that an increase is effective immediately Remind us to who the United Farm workers are. United find workers is is a labor is a labor union, and they're the ones their labor union for farm workers, and that's beginning that food. Um Sued the department labor and they were represented by by farmworker Justice, which is a nada kissing and legal organization. Indicated on their behalf and represented them. Yeah, but going back to the wage Freeze. Why did the labor Secretary freeze those wages? Well, that's a really good question. That's that's the golden question. Um, you know, I think that there hasn't been a tremendous appetite. And in recent administrations for raising wages in general on did you see that right now? They can't seem to get through a federal unemployment rate. Wage hike here in the state of Florida. We have also, obviously just this year passed a graduated wage hike for minimum wages that goes into effect between now and incrementally between now and 2024. But just in general, we haven't really had an administration. That's been pro wage hike. Yeah, I'm gonna come back to these each to a workers. Just as you said. You can't really see farmworkers is such a general term. Because you have a number of different types of workers. But the H two way specifically, they are allowed to come into this country for specific work and for spec specific amount of time, right? Exactly what do they do? Yeah, So So for the actuary workers. They work on farms. They're usually picking or collecting fruits and vegetables. Sometimes not so about 90% of them Come from Mexico. Did you come from other countries as well but predominantly from Mexico? And they come up here for a very special fied period of time. So maybe they'll come up here to work. Um, you know, just during watermelon picking season and that they picked watermelons between this state in this state. They haven't arrival date and end date already scheduled before they come, and they're housed at the farm. So the farmers that employees engaged to a worker's provide them. They have to reimburse their transportation to and from the country, and they also provide them housing and transportation to the fields each day. Mm. You know, I was wondering about this aspect of the story is that every year states that have aged we workers they have toe turn in wage surveys. Correct for these aged, we workers. They do They do. Um, So those wage surveys are very specifically designed to protect American workers. Because we've all heard people say Well, foreign workers come in. They take American jobs They worked for for low wages, and they take American jobs. So this was designed to make sure that that didn't happen. It was designed T o. It's twofold. Really, The primary Reason was to make sure that foreign workers weren't undercutting American workers for the same job. It's also a side effect protects foreign workers to make sure that they're not understand it. You know that they're not underpaid, you know that they're not working for $5 an hour, but the primary reason is to protect American workers so that American workers get At first crack at the job, Um But but these waves service each state has to turn them in, and Florida completely neglected to return them for the entire 2019 and only 400 of them in 200 in 2000 and 18. And when I reached out to the Department of Economic Opportunity, which is tasked with returning these surveys, getting them completed in return in return, they neglected to say why they didn't return them. They said they were gonna get back to me. But then they never did. All right. And what you had said again in 2019 the hand turn it any surveys in 2018. They had only turned in 10 of 400. I mean, I mean, if that's the case, then would we be able to say Hold on a second. American workers could be hurt because this or is the H U H two a workers who could be be underpaid because of this or both. Well, it could be either both or neither. Because we don't know the true reason why the state has not returned the surveys. I've certainly talked to farmworker advocates. Have a pine that the reason that the state hasn't returned. The surveys is because it bite force the wages higher and they're trying to avoid giving an increase in wages increase that the lawsuit Uh, Mandated like it said only went from 11 71 an hour to 12. Oh, eight an hour, So it was. It was very small. It is an increasing on the left. But I think the idea that advocate The advocate there pretty much rallying around is the idea that if the wage surveys were properly returned it with force the state to have to offer higher wages, right arm was in a state to have enough for higher wages. When did you get a sense of you know which workers Florida growers prefer? Um, yeah. I mean, absolutely. I think people want to hire American workers. Absolutely. That is. The first choice is to hire an employee American. The problem is is that there's very few Americans that want to work on farm. I can I can tell you as it was presented to me. Um bye bye. Representative Rick Ross, who's who covers West Palm Beach and has a farm here in Palm Beach. He said. How many people do you know that? That girl thing I want to be a farm. A farmer. I wanna pick strawberries. You know, I wanna I wanna pick oranges..

"Slash Wall Street bets. Apparently, the sight was made private for some amount of time and was made public again just recently. According to some of the folks in our chat room over at chat dot lrn don't have them. If you want to join the Matrix chat server. There's discussion of this has been going on. There s O check that think they're mistaken. I think they've confused it with the story of discourse. Shutting down the server. Okay, Because that was the other aspect of this was that discord has targeted this Wall Street. That server. Is that what you were going to tell us about? So they've shut down their server complete lists. It's dead, just like the LR in discord Server indeed well and for the same reason, they said hate speech. But according to the people that verge, you know that's pretty true. They were not censoring anything. And there were a lot of racial slurs and stuff. And, oh, I thought they were saying they hated the hedge funds, and so therefore we need to protect the hedge funds. That would have been hilarious. But that doesn't seem to have been the case. Well, well. I would like to suggest to them to check out The Matrix matrix is a poly centric. I think that's a better word than decentralized. It's certainly not like corporate controlled is out of the corporate control. We have our own matrix server. It's ah Federated, which means it's connected to other Matrix servers all around the Internet. So you can reach people who are on those other servers and vice versa. And so I would recommend instead of, you know, just trying to dance around these corporate platforms because that's what most people do is they get kicked off a one corporate pat platform, and then they try to find another corporate platform to replace it. So with social media. They went from Facebook to like me, we or may way or ever been pronouncing parlor Well, parlor got shut down, basically completely by wreck its Web host and Esso on. We talked about that when it happened, But I also saw post recently by this may way who they've been cracking down now on all kinds of groups on May way, so if you thought you were going to go to another centralized platform And that you'd have some sort of safety there. No, your days were numbered from the start. So the best thing you can do is do decentralization. Go with the Matrix Chat server. You don't have to use ours. But you can. If you want. You can go to Matrix. Or good chat down lrn dot FM, and it would give you the step by step instructions on how to get on the server. And there, you can create your own channels. If you want to mean there's already a bunch of channels there you can join. But if there's you know, not the channel that has the topic you want to see discuss, make you're out. If you want it to be public or private. You could do that, too, and it's private. Then you have to invite people to it. But if it's public than it's listed, and anyone can join So check that out and chat. Don lrn dot FM. That's that's a solution for these guys from Wall Street. That's because it may be only a matter of time before read. It takes them down to I mean, who knows is ready to publicly traded company. I have no idea. I don't believe I don't know either. S so again if you wanna weigh in here, 603283 61 60. This is a big deal, and it'll be interesting to see how this develops because these guys have no reason to let up. No, they just made a bunch of money and the longer they don't let up, the more money they make. That's right. One of the things was interesting about this was how I don't know where that post went to. There was a really interesting post that kind of sum this up. Okay, here it is. Just low Key on Twitter at Loki, Julianne Icis. For those who don't know why they're flipping out. Ah, Busted short has to quote investor PD. A hoof raises it nicely and infinite potential for loss because the higher the price of the stock in this case, Gamestop is what's being played with here. The more money you lose if you're a shorter right and you owe people shares, which are scarce. Not money, which is plentiful so and this is explains what you were saying earlier about why the price continues to skyrocket on game stop because the people who are buying it also had the intention to not sell. They want to hold on to the stocks. Which means when these hedge fund managers air trying to repurchase the stocks that they owe people, they can't do it. And it bids the price up of what few stocks are willing to be sold to the point where a lot of these guys on reddit are paying off loans. They're paying off college loans They're buying, you know medicines for their their sick family members. They're all of a sudden these people have a tremendous amount of wealth at their disposal. And you know what they could do with all that wealth, Buy more stocks, My Bitcoin. Well, then they should buy Bitcoin, Bonnie and you're right about that on. Did I hear that? AMC and BlackBerry? Are there? Next targets? Wow. Did you? Did you check the belle of the BlackBerry Stock stock price. I did it. Okay. I haven't either. But AMC shot up by like 100% in just the last day so they may have already begun this process. And some people in our chat room was saying this has been being planned for weeks, so well, sure, something like this doesn't happen overnight. But they made the realization recently that Hey, we actually have more stocks than these people who shortage can acquire And that was when they put this plan into motion and it worked brilliantly Fascinating. 603283 61 60 So You know now they could do this again and again and again, presumably unless they can somehow pull out all the stops and managed to restrict the marketplace because these are centrally controlled markets. That's the one problem that they're dealing with. Here is they are ultimately playing by the system's rules. Now they figured out a way to play the system. And, but that doesn't mean the system won't change its rules. Try to make things more difficult. So I expect that that you're going to see some interesting continuing, you know, conflict on this. Well, they've already sort of begun to change. The rules with not access spent. NASDAQ suspending the trading of game stop. Wasn't that they suspended Gamestop did. We haven't confirmed that they at least suspended game stuff, according to the article that we read So that's changing the rules right there. Hey, we don't like what's happening. We're putting a stop to it. But if they do that, then the hedge fund people literally cannot re buy the stocks. So it's not benefiting the hedge fund people either. What happens in that case? I mean, if they can't re buy the stock that they promised whoever it was that loan the stock to them. What did they is there an option where they can pay like 10 times the cost and just cash it out, or I mean, eventually they go out of business. Then the person doesn't get the stock back. So then I imagine these contracts are enormously long. Yeah. Have a question. What would you say to somebody who said would say like that? It doesn't make sense that you would like this happening to the hedge funds because you're pro capitalism. Oh, well, I'm not a capitalist. I'm a free market person like I don't like the term capitalism..

"From around the world Adapted for Today's families that circle round available on apple podcasts. It's here And now around the world, Sea turtles have had a tough time. Climate change is heating up the beaches where they nest in the waters where they live. Plastic is strangling them straws impaling them out in the ocean. There's potentially good news about sea turtles in South Florida near Biscayne Bay, which has had some major pollution. Jenny's to let a bitch from member station W. Lrn recently spotted dozens of turtles in the bay and that a fisherman who says he's seen him more. In a flat Calm day this summer, Dirk Jacobs was piloting his 22 Ft Fishing Boat south near Miami, just outside Biscayne Bay. Jacobs has been fishing around South Florida and in Biscayne Bay since 1967 I've seen the ups and downs. I've seen the reason the horrible and I seen him look good that day, he says he saw something few people have ever seen. Hundreds of sea turtles like a herd of buffalo thundering along the outer reef looked down. It was crystal clear, and there was Just turtle after turtle after turtle after turtle, and it went on for However far it is from Stan's cut down about specific late. You're looking out on the water, and it was one eternal after another. If he truly saw hundreds of kernels, that would be something spectacular. Chris Sasso is a fisheries biologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Seeing hundreds of turtles would be spectacular because Marine biologists know hardly anything about what turtles do it. See. Scientists think Jacob's probably saw green Sea turtles, along with loggerheads and other turtles that live around South Florida. They nest on beaches. But once they hatch, they're outta here. Females come back to beaches where they were born. Too late eggs, But males never return. That means almost everything we know about turtles and how we can protect them is based on this very brief time they spend on beaches once they head out to sea. It's a mystery. It's a bit like bobbing for apples blindfolded in a way because it may not know exactly where to look. Kate Mansfield is director of the University of Central Florida's Marine Turtle Research Group. Marine biologist says it's her mission to uncover this time that see what scientists call the turtle lost years. It takes about 25 so 35 years for a sea turtle to reach maturity, so they have to survive those 2 to 3 decades out in the open ocean researchers used to think after hatching. The baby turtles floated aimlessly added. See, and that's of seaweed called Sir Gasam. The star Ghassan is loaded with crabs and other kinds of turtle food. There's this big circular syriza of currents in the Atlantic called the North Atlantic subtropical gyre. And the Gulf stream, so everyone just assumed that they would just ride this current around from the Gulf Stream, Tonto, the North Atlantic current, which would take him over to the Azores, But now researchers had these tiny satellite trackers they can attach to the backs of baby turtles, and those trackers are telling a different story. Many of the baby turtles are actually swimming against currents and heading into the star gas. Oh, see, that's the area at the center of all these Atlantic currents filled with all that turtle food, So it's really cool is that the Sargasso Sea is emerging as a very important nursery habitat for Ah lot of sea turtles that emerged off of our beaches up and down the Florida coast. So why does all this matter to the turtles that the fishermen saw on July your Biscayne Bay? They literally just got back from the torch. You guys like I'm still putting like some stuff, You know Cream on my base. Kristen Hart is really good at tracking animals. She's a population Ecologist with the U. S Geological Survey. Some go really far and come back, but some actually don't this game is uniquely situated. Along the migratory corridor for a lot of animals. So that's one of my questions generally, like Am I gonna have a lot of resident animals? Are they just gonna be cooking through heart Thinks waters around this game Bay may be home to more turtles and scientists had thought and watching them could provide really important clues about those lost years and how turtles mate What we thought we knew Because a lot of the tiger has been a nesting females. You tracked them back to where they go, and then you're like, OK, it lives there. But if you're male, or if you're becoming a mature individual, when are you making you're what I call risky movements or where you're going to meet and if turtles are staying near Biscayne Bay, bustling with boat traffic and in normal times Cruise ships and freighters. What threats do they face? That's where Sasso the know a marine biologist comes in. He's studying how ocean traffic effects turtles. It may be that turtles like manatees needs special, low speed zones where they hang out one of the larger concerns for sea turtles. Much like manatees are boat strikes because they do spend time you know, loafing at the surface, and sometimes they're kind of We already know how to protect turtles. When they nest on beaches there ness get marked so they don't get trampled. Also, streetlights and floodlights from nearby buildings have been changed so turtles don't get confused, trying to make it out to sea. Investing numbers, especially for green Sea turtles are way up. What fishermen jerk Jacob Song is both that day. Just turtle after turtle after turtle after Turtle. Could be a sign that they're doing better at sea, too. If 2020 could be good for something, I mean, I said we're going to turtles for here. And now I'm Jenny still lead a bitch. And here now is a production of NPR and W. Bur association with the BBC.

"Could bring up anything that you want our number here. A 55 4 50 Free matrix chat room over at chat. Don lrn don f and multiple rooms, I should say. With me in the studio tonight. It's Ian and Chris and nobody. All right, So we're talking about Facebook. Being targeted by the Federal Trade Commission and dozens of state government gangs. For alleged anti competitive practices, they say. They're seeking a permanent injunction in federal court that could, among other things, require Facebook to divest its assets, including Instagram and WhatsApp. Effectively breaking up Facebook as we know it, we'll tell you more about that. You can share your thoughts with us as well. And perhaps you've heard about us talking about Davey here on free talk live and you've wanted to set up a divvy Master note. It is relatively simple. In fact, pray the easiest I've ever seen for Master notes set up a master note is a special note on the network to provide certain services in return for compensation. You can do that. But you do have to get divvy in order to lock it up in the master note and so to do that you need to buy to be either at an exchange and there's multiple from which to choose. Or you could just get it straight from the D B team by connecting with them on their telegram channel. Over at DV Project Out or D, I v i project dot org's That's DV project dot org's. We'll talk about this supposed what might be an eventual babe break up of Facebook, according to Ian Connor, the director of the FTC's Bureau of Competition. As though the government knows anything about that. You know, if they were gonna break something up, there was a lot of companies that you're broken up a long before. Now. Like who? The federal government? Well, yeah, That's what I could be hilarious. If they entered in the antitrust action to get into themselves would be seems unlikely. Yeah, no, I don't know There's been a lot of big mean effectively. They're arguing that the company's too big, So there's a lot of big companies. Well, they're arguing that it's abusing its its anti comm power. Which it certainly is. Yeah, I mean, but based on that Like logic, you could say our walmart is, if you if you wanna, you know, buy into the idea that, you know, you know they're hindering competition in the marketplace because they sell everything as opposed to just certain select types of goods, And that's somehow unfair. In terms of competition, I would say, I mean, that was how the thing that caught my Facebook irritated about Facebook's What's there's competition for Facebook. It's well, It's not about competition. I think so much is, you know, doing psychological experiments. Not with your matter on. Really? No, it's about they're claiming it's anticompetitive behavior, so we'll get into that. Is that the excuse, sir? Is that what's really bothering them? Well, who knows what's really bothering them again. Like you said, May nobody? Maybe Zuckerberg crossed somebody in the federal government. They're punishing him. So we don't know what the actual you know. Maybe he didn't maybe didn't show enough respect to the you know the uniformed goons or the suited goons while he was testifying in front of Congress, And now somebody's decided Tonto sick, the FTC against so Who knows what Petty. This actually made that cut himself shaving and got hydraulic fluid and somebody. So here's what the director of the FTC's Bureau of competition has to say. He says personal social networking is central to the lives of millions of Americans. Facebook's actions to entrench and maintain its monopoly, which what monopolies not a monopoly in our monopoly. There's so many different ways the entire Internet is a communications platform, right like there's so many different ways to get me Get on the Internet from telegram and instant messaging, Different messaging client. Sure you can start your own two headed to the forearms to there are competitors. I'm saying you could start your own. They've got open source alternatives. I mean, this this tonight this radio where you're gonna find three billion users for years, but that doesn't make them a monopoly. That doesn't make a monopoly. I'm not even on Facebook. If they were monopoly, you pretty much only be able to communicate through Facebook, and there are places like that world rhythms on the market in Internet. Quote I'm quoting Internet. But if you sign for the Internet, you have activated just getting Facebook, Wikipedia and like, you know, a couple of other, you know, Monopoly services or once again, you can't use the term monopoly. That's that's the problem here in the instance that you're signing up for the Internet in quotes and you're only getting Facebook than you kind of are getting well, then, in that case, what you're doing maybe without your knowledge is your choosing Facebook as your Internet provider. Essentially that which you have to wait for your friends. Not really Internet then though, Okay, But what you're referring to is I've heard of it in like we talked about it here are free to go well was like that There's Ah. I see what you're saying. But what they're doing is Facebook has partnered up with cell phone providers in places like Africa, where there's not a whole lot of Internet to begin with, and in a lot of places and can't take their garbage off your phone, correct because it's built into the phones in this particular case. And so they're getting quote on quote Internet, but it's really just Facebook. Ultimate. I don't know if they're calling Internet or not, because it's not. It's certainly not neither access. But if they are calling Internet that's probably more of a misleading thing than saying It's a monopoly that even then, so it was such fun Pulling the Facebook code out of so 4110. Yeah. So, but what they're offering these these packages that like a reduced cost, or maybe it's even included in the cell phone plan or whatever I forget. It's been a little while since we've talked about these things, But basically there's people in Africa who believed that Facebook is the Internet. Because that's the only experience they've ever had with it they don't have. They've not had Internet access outside of this limited, you know, I don't know if I don't recall if they were allowing for like certain links to work, meaning that like if you see a link somebody posted on Facebook to say CNN dot com. I don't know if they were letting that like first level of link..
