3 Produce Workers Stole $300,000 Worth of Avocados

Imagine going to prison for avocado theft.

Fencing one avocado at a time doesn't seem like a great business plan.

I work with a guy who knew those guys.
At some point in the next week to ten days there is a very good chance your grocers won't have avocado on the shelf. If they do, most likely they will be around $2 each.

Because someone stole avocados a year and a half ago?

No, just the only thread that came up when I did a search.
Nothing has been picked for close to 2 weeks.

Is it because all the farmhands are at an avocado pickers convention?

A week ago, producers of avocado stopped harvesting and consequently selling avocado to the packing companies that market the product, as a form of protest and to demand they be paid a fair price for this product.

After a week of conflict, the entire avocado sector in Michoacan is in crisis, as the work stoppage affects 16,800 direct jobs and more than 70,000 temporary jobs, reported avocado growers and packers.

In addition to the damage to the families that grow avocado, the sector has had losses of 60 million pesos a day, as they have been unable to export 3,000 tons of avocados a day to the United States.

Holy guacamole, I've got ublock origin running full force and the the number of animated ads that bypassed the blocker on that page is giving me tourettes or epilepsy or something.

One truck load of avocados is worth $125k right now.
You're retail prices are going to skyrocket or be from Peru, which will take forever to ripen.
It would help me happy if you guys that shop at Meijer start to complain about the fruit from mission or calavo.

I always let the cashier know that it’s fucking bullshit and that the only reason I grabbed them is so that I could take them to the register and not buy them so that they would have to put them back.
