Advisors of the German Trade Union Federation for Eastern European Workers raise serious accusations against the Bavarian vegetable farm where 250 harvest workers were infected with Corona. The large-scale company Gemusebau Wagner in Mamming, with about 500 seasonal workers mainly from Romania, paid less than the legal minimum wage, withheld the workers’ identity cards and housed the people without a Corona safety distance, the DGB project "Fair Mobility" told the taz. It refers to two visits on site, statements and self-written time sheets of about 30 workers as well as accounts of the company. A part is present to the taz. The farm is currently one of the largest corona infestations in Germany.
