May First Protests

Apr 28, 2008

This May 1st there are demonstrations in a number of cities organized by immigrant rights groups around the slogan of legalization for all. It’s outrageous that workers are employed in this country and pay taxes, yet have no rights. Not only do they suffer from discrimination and unscrupulous employers who try to take advantage of them in every way, but all workers in this country are affected as well. The presence of millions of workers without any rights creates a downward pressure on the wages and benefits of the entire working class.

Every worker should demand that immigrants working here be legalized immediately.
