In the 1960s, Cesar Chavez and the United Farm Workers union successfully pressured producers into improving agricultural working conditions in California by leading a nationwide boycott of table grapes. The boycott taught farmers that consumers care about more than just product quality and price; they also trust producers to treat their employees fairly.
