Certain entrepreneurs in southern Spain also welcome migrant workers from Africa. The landscape around Almeria is almost completely covered with white tarpaulins. The workers who plant and harvest salad and tomatoes in these greenhouse tents are almost exclusively black and have no valid residence permits. As a result, their working conditions are not in accordance with EU industrial laws. Their payment is half of the legal minimum wage, their accommodations are poor and lacking minimum standards of hygiene and the workers are constantly in danger of being deported. According to the UN‘s official definition, these are the conditions of contemporary slavery. For African migrants, the refugee and migrant encampments in northern Africa and the sea of plastic in „Europe‘s salad bowl“ outside of Almeria are equidistant from „Europe“.
