Stand Up for All Workers2014.07.14quote-trumka

The labor movement never stands by when workers are mistreated.  We don’t stand by when immigrant workers aren’t paid fair wages on the construction site, or when employers use shady tactics to fire hotel workers based on their immigration status when they stand up for their rights.  And when we know there are jobs on the table, like the 800,000 new jobs that would be created by immigration reform, we fight like hell for every single one.
