White Collar and Political Crimes
You have been hired as a criminologist to assist the Farm Worker's Union.  The Union is making the following allegations:  Each year thousands of farm workers are sickened by exposure to pesticides used on the farms where they work.  Exposure occurs when workers are in the fields and helicopters spray nearby fields.  The industry is aware of the problem, but continues the practice.  The government considers the problem of pesticide drift a statistically small one compared to the total amount of pesticide applications.
The Union is frustrated by the apparent collusion between the industry and government.
Write a 1750-2850 word paper on the following:
a. Is the farm industry committing a crime?  Why or why not?
b. Is the government committing a crime? Why or why not?
c. If it is not a crime, where can these farm workers obtain relief?
d. What has been the historical success of other employees working in unsafe conditions gaining any kind of relief?
