    A short while back, bajadock wrote a commentary about the strawberry pickers wage dispute with Driscoll’s, and I see this week that our local grocery store in Northern California is selling ‘peak season’ Driscoll’s strawberries for an outrageously low $4.59 for 3 POUNDS! I understand the need to move a lot of perishable strawberries in a short time, but I believe Driscoll’s is selling at too low a price at this time. Great for the consumer, but at what price to the pickers. I would rather pay a little more and see the bounty go to the pickers’ pockets.
