MOUNT VERNON — Sakuma Bros. Farms must provide housing to workers’ families, according to a court decision Thursday that will likely have far-reaching impacts in the state.

Skagit County Superior Court Judge Susan Cook said that because Sakuma Bros. chose to provide housing, they are bound by laws against discrimination.

    The judicial system in this country is a mockery. People get compensated for getting burnt when they spill their own cup of coffee, or for running into a glass door that was too clean for them to see. Now a company must supply housing for whole families no matter how many of them are actually working. Every processor in Alaska provides housing ONLY for working employees. How is providing housing just for workers a form of discrimination? I used to appreciate the hard work of migrant crews, unfortunately, it looks like they have found the loop holes in the system to get the most for the least amount of work.

    Outside activities are giving the hard-working, decent migrants a bad name in this community. Sakumas would probably have gone to total automation by now if they didn't think highly of the people and their families who work for them.
