the poor farmers

from Socialist Worker:

THE NATIONAL Farmers Union has launched legal action to block the decision by the agricultural wages board to raise farm workers' pay by 3 percent. These rich farmers are the people who marched recently for "liberty and livelihood".

The NFU resigned from the board in August on the grounds that £4.91 an hour was too much for rural workers.
