Florida farmworker at risk of pesticide poisoning

Eulalia didn't feel she could complain about the conditions as a farm worker in Apopka, Florida.

"The first time I was sprayed with pesticides… they had to close the farms down because there was so much chemical contamination, and there were so many people that were sick. No one will say anything because they're afraid of losing their jobs."
