DUDLEY, N.C. - Ben Grady didn't take to Baldemar Velasquez. The middle-age farmer didn't see any need for Velasquez's labor union. Then Velasquez laid some winning lines on Grady.
"We want to work with the farmers. We want to help you, because we know that without you we don't have work," Velasquez said, and Grady said he welcomed such words.
