Description

This video concentrates on the Mexican people and their main sources of income - coffee. It explores the poor living conditions that these people endure because of the small income that they receive from their hard work. The video also examines a small cooperative in Nova Scotia, named Just Us, who is willing to pay the Mexicans a fair rate for the coffee.
