Lesson activities to accompany the vignette "Farmworkers” from the acclaimed Knowledge Network series; Working People: A History of Labour in British Columbia produced by Landrock Entertainment. The vignette examines the British Columbian farmworkers whose work largely fell outside the protections of B.C. labour legislation and the efforts the Canadian Farmworkers’ Union to organize farmworkers and to provide them with the protections afforded to other labourers in the province . This is a unit created by the Labour History Project, a group of retired and current British Columbia teachers collaborating to develop a series of lesson plans, activities, and workshops focused on labour studies and labour history.
