Report details growing threat to American workers, calls for federal safety policies

Report details growing threat to American workers, calls for federal safety policies | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
The safety of American workers falls under a growing threat, according to a new report. [pdf] American industry's increasing reliance on “contingent workers” to fill hazardous jobs
Community Village Sites's insight:

People who harvest our crops and feed our nation should very well be made citizens of our nation. 

 

"Guest Worker" perpetuates Jim Crow segregation and a permanent population of second class field workers.citizens of our nation.  


There should be no such loophole as a "Guest Worker" program. We don't invite a guest to our house and then ask them to work for us.

I had thought the best way to 'sell' open immigration was to tug at your heart strings, however Mr. Aldrete explains the benefits of immigration via our pocket books. He has the most effective description to 'sell' progressive immigration reform that I've ever heard.

Migration is Beautiful

Migration is Beautiful | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it


"Artist and co-founder of CultureStrike, Favianna Rodriguez, created the “Migration is Beautiful” butterfly image. “The butterfly symbol was not my idea. Immigrant rights activists have seen the butterfly as a symbol of fluid and peaceful migration for generations. To me, the monarch butterfly represents the dignity and resilience of migrants, and the right that all living beings have to move freely. I believe that we shouldn’t allow our identity to be defined only by our suffering, nor by the actions that others have taken to devalue our families and our labor — rather, let us celebrate our beauty, pride, and resilience in the face of inequality and injustice.”

America needs to hear these stories.

 

Check the part with Bill Russell about half way through.

 

It's about segregation vs integration and migration vs immigration;  about moving out of the Jim Crow South; and about the move from no education to Harvard education.
