Watch the full documentary: http://bit.ly/1TVIJX9

In northern Mexico, farm workers who pick produce bound for US supermarkets earn as little as $7 a day. They follow the harvest, traveling between the states of Sinaloa and Baja California as internal migrants in their own country. With daycare not an option, children join their parents on the job, sometimes working in 100-degree heat.

In this extra scene, farm workers receive their daily wage. For a 52-year-old laborer working six hours a day, her salary is $7.50 — plus a marshmallow.
