Green tea politics in Kenya

In Kenya, a huge tea plantation is ready to fill "major orders for a new tea variety set to be launched in the U.S." The owners begin to roll out big, expensive tea-picking machines, but after eighty thousand workers threaten to strike, Kenya's Minister of Labor orders the removal of the machines.
