From the AFL-CIO:
Solis, Trumka Talk Immigration Reform, Worker Rights on Live Webcast http://bit.ly/cGFZGq
Join Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka for a live video webcast Monday to address the urgent need for comprehensive immigration reform from a worker rights perspective. The webcast will air at 1 p.m. EDT.
Solis will explore the corporate exploitation of undocumented immigrant workers and the depressing effect it has on labor standards nationally. She also will outline how fixing our nation’s broken immigration system is essential to advancing the rights of all workers.
Trumka will review the union movement’s immigration policy and discuss the AFL-CIO’s plans to advance this important piece of our program to create an economy that works for everyone.
