I’m just a little more than an hour from a major sugar plantation, and the sugar fields I live in are home to more than 100 workers.
They’re the kind of workers who will go to work in the factory five racing factory in Biloxi, Mississippi, and then drive to work the next day in a sugar refinery on the Gulf Coast.
There are a couple of other sugar factories nearby, but they’re all on the Mississippi River.
They make about 5 million barrels of cane sugar a day.
But the industry that employs them is more than just a job, it’s a way to make a living for the people who live in these communities.
The sugar fields are a keystone of Biloxia’s economy.
For the past century, these fields have been a mainstay of the city of Bilton, a coastal community that stretches from Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle.
Today, about half of the town’s residents work in sugar fields.
Today’s workers are mostly African American, with some Asian and Latinx members.
They often get the same pay as the average worker, but their lives have changed in recent years.
The area is now home to a sprawling complex of sugar processing plants that makes about 3.5 million barrels a day and employs about 2,500 people.
These factories, like many in the United States, are the main source of income for the Mississippi Valley’s sugar farmers, who depend on their jobs to support their families.
But while these workers may have the most precarious of jobs, they’re also among the most vulnerable.
Sugar is extracted from the cane, which is harvested from the tree by the thousands, then ground up and processed into cane sugar.
In some places, it can take three to five years to produce the sugar that the workers produce.
When they finally make the end product, they typically spend weeks in a line waiting for a shipment.
That’s when the workers are forced to pick cotton, which requires a lot of energy and time, as well as a lot more water.
In the process, the sugar is extracted, and when it’s sold as cane, it has a high level of lead and other contaminants that pose a serious health risk to the workers and the communities in which they live.
And the lead is often sold in cans and other products that can be inhaled.
In a state that has seen so many deaths from lead poisoning since its devastating Flint crisis in 2014, many Mississippi residents have been struggling to find ways to reduce lead exposure, which affects both children and adults.
One of the solutions being studied by the Mississippi sugar industry is a method called “contaminated cane.”
The process involves spraying the sugar cane with a chemical called methanol, which turns the cane into a brownish liquid.
The chemical is a byproduct of the sugar processing process, which uses a lot less water than the extraction process, and also requires a smaller amount of land and water than most other industries.
When a small amount of methanolic dust is mixed with the sugar, it forms a thick, yellowish film that is absorbed into the soil, where it can stick to the roots of the trees and contaminate the soil.
And it’s this yellow-green material that’s often left behind by the workers, because they have to pick their own cotton, wash their hands, and collect their trash.
The process can take weeks, and workers have to be paid to pick the cotton.
The farmers say that, in some cases, the pay is too low to sustain a family.
“The families don’t have enough money to keep the family going,” said Mike Brown, who runs a small farm in the town of Bilbo, about 30 miles east of Bilxand, and who is one of the workers in the project.
“When I work, I work 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and I’m doing this for free, for the family.
But if I had to go and pick my own cotton to pay the bills, I’d just give up on it, I’m not gonna do it.
The whole time, the whole family is struggling, and they can’t afford the food, and it’s not fair.”
The farmers’ union in Bilxanda, the local union for sugar farmers in Mississippi, has also been trying to raise the minimum wage to $8 an hour, and have been successful.
But for now, their members are being forced to work on a temporary basis, and their pay is only $3.50 an hour.
When asked if the union was willing to help them raise the pay, Brown said, “Yeah, absolutely.”
And he added, “There are a lot people out there that are looking to do this, and that’s why I’m here.
We’re here to raise awareness and fight for change.”
The industry has been lobbying for higher wages, and a local legislator introduced legislation in the Mississippi House of
