SAN QUINTIN, Mexico
The legs of fruit pickers Genaro Perfecto, 38, and his wife Cecilia Feliciano, 37, are seen as they pose for a photo with their children in the courtyard of their house in San Quintin in Baja California state, Mexico April 1, 2015. Fruit pickers in the Baja California peninsula of Mexico, railing against a life of grinding poverty, have blocked roads, staged marches and held meetings with lawmakers since March as frustration over working conditions boiled over. One labourer in San Quintin, south of the border town of Tijuana, sleeps with his family on the bare earth in a tiny wooden shack on scrubland. He said after picking between 110 kg and 200kg of strawberries a day he earns from $56 to $79 a week. Strawberries fetched $5.19 a kilo on average in the United States in 2013.
