MIAMI (AP) - McDonald's has announced an agreement to pay a penny more per pound for its Florida grown-tomatoes.
The move is an effort to boost wages for migrant workers who harvest the produce.
Farm workers receive about 40 cents for each 32-pound bucket, according to their representatives. The extra penny per pound boosts that to about 72 cents per bucket.
A McDonald's spokesman says the increase won't be passed on to customers.
The deal involves grape tomatoes used in McDonald's salads. It will require suppliers to follow a workplace code of conduct that workers will help create.
