Alison Clark commented on Annabel Short's blog post Speaking with "locked out" Trade Fair meat workers
"Who says she can't speak English? It just says she's speaking Spanish. Furthermore, no one said anything about illegal immigrants. This is about, quite simply, a group of workers fighting to retain what they've earned. "

Kara Bell commented on Annabel Short's blog post Speaking with "locked out" Trade Fair meat workers
"How can first woman quoted work  there 23 years and not speak English?   If Trade Fair decided, like others, to go with illegal immigrants, they deserve to be screwed over now.  "
