Every summer, Monsanto hosts a Farmers Market in Granite City, IL, a suburb of St. Louis, the headquarters of Monsanto. Realize that St. Louis does not want anything sponsored by Monsanto anywhere within their city even though Monsanto has been around for over 100 years. The nickname of St. Louis is “The Loo.” The city is associated with a toilet and the toilet bowl wants to keep Monsanto away.
At this Farmers Market, many of Monsanto’s employees eat some of the GMO corn grown at this particular farm in Granite City. I need to know if there is a clause in their contracts that forces them to eat this corn. Working at Monsanto means that you have the chance to eat corn covered in pesticides. Yum!
