Are Today’s Working Conditions Akin To Slavery

Depending on the society, there are people today who are beaten, killed and shot, when trying to organize the strength of workers. Families are broken apart due to social conditions.

Farm Worker Struggle Is Still Grabbing Headlines

Since the days of Cesar Chavez, the politics of the farm worker have been much more publicized than almost any sector of work in our community. Chicanos, Mexicanos and Central Americans are over represented in many other industries, yet the struggles of the farm worker continue to make headlines more frequently than other sectors of [...]

The Duress of Workers Through The Prism Of Contract Duress

I was reading this post called Union Busting is Market Manipulation and Wage Theft. The post was on DirtyHippies, and part of the argument I found to be very insightful. I love theory, even though it is often difficult to debate via the internets. Here is a portion of the argument, along with my response. [...]

Giumarra Sued By EEOC

Late last year, I posted about The United Farmworker’s Union (UFW) and their campaign against Giumarra, the largest table grape company in the world.  Being that the UFW was home to Cesar Chavez, whom certain conservatives are literally trying to write out of the history books, I thought this update would be important.  Please consider [...]
