Strawberry pickers fired for leaving in wildfire –

Last week, when wildfires broke out in California’s Camarillo Springs, strawberry pickers working nearby found themselves struggling to breathe in ash-drenched air. Fifteen laborers stopped working and went inside for their own safety. But when they returned the next day they found that their employer, Crisalida Farms, had fired them.
