AFL-CIO Calls to Legalize Workers
The United States' largest labor federation, the AFL-CIO, brought to a close its 25th annual convention with a call to legalize undocumented workers and a condemnation of the free trade agreement with Central America and the Dominican Republic known as the CAFTA-DR.
"Undocumented workers and their families should get the opportunity to secure legal status through a new legalization program," says a resolution endorsed by the assembly.
The main organization as well as a dissident coalition formed at the Chicago convention decided to focus attention and funds on recruiting Latino workers, especially women.
Notice to all union workers: You have been sold out! The people that you pay dues to, the ones that are supposed to "protect" your job, have endorsed letting non-citizens take your job.
The union is for people who have broken the law by working here and taken a job that an American citizen could have.
Looks like they put politics before their working members.
