I am writing because I am concerned about the lack of competition in agricultural markets.
Why are we letting a few corporations dictate what we eat, and how farmers are allowed to grow their crops and tend to their livestock? Who is watching out for the consumer if a few large corporations have taken over control? And why is the government looking the other way when these corporations hire illegal workers with low wages and no benefits? Where is their punishment for this behavior?
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to comment.
