Although an "effective protest doesn't require a majority," it does require a high level of integrity, which the United Farm Workers lacks. If Chavez were correct and he had inflicted damage on the table grape industry, farm workers would be out of work. Workers have in fact, however, just completed the most successful harvest in the California table grape industry's history. Unlike other years, in 1990 farmers were selling grapes directly to retailers. According to UFW records submitted to the U.S. Department of Labor, the union has spent more than $10 million to promote its 6-year-old grape boycott.

If NAFTA equalizes only marketing and does nothing to address labor, water, land use, food safety and many other issues, then lifting the ban on avocados will simply be another "success" only for a few businesses and serve as a defeat for consumers and farmers.
