Fruit-Picking Children
Aired on ABC – Nightline, Good Morning America and World News with Charles Gibson
30 October 2009
Reporter/Carnegie Fellow

Watch the Nightline story.
Watch a followup story on Democracy Now!

This story is the result of a summer long investigative reporting project by the four Carnegie Fellows (of whom I was one) chosen to work with ABC’s Brian Ross Investigative Reporting Unit. All footage – with the exception of the blueberry festival, Adkins shots and Zama interview – was shot by the Carnegie Fellows. We were not involved in the writing of the script and feel that, due to time constraints, the final product was not able to fully convey the complex nature of the issue.

The day this story aired, Walmart and supermarket chain Kroger severed ties with Adkin packaging company. That same week, the Department of Labor cited the owner for child labor violations discovered during the summer. The DOL has also cracked down on farmers in Michigan, North Carolina, New Jersey and Arkansas for child labor violations.
