Labor on the Job will look at what has brought about the most massive labor movement since the 1930's and where this is heading. We will also look at why this movement is important to not only immigrants but all workers. Finally we will look at the "guest worker" programs and other policies that are being backed by the national political parties.

There will also be a segment on the death threats against Colombian trade unionists and how it affects their lives and families. This film has been submitted to be screened at the upcoming July 2006 LaborFest International Working Class Film and Video Festival http://www.laborfest.net
