Organized Labor, Immigrants, and the Rights of All Workers
From the origins of May Day in the 1880s to the unprecedented immigrant rights marches of 2006, immigrants have been an integral part of organized labor, and their struggles have underlined the rights of all workers. Any attempt to separate “workers” from “immigrants” is patently ahistorical. This panel will explore the history of immigrant workers in labor organizing up to the present-day convergence of labor, immigrant rights, and social justice movements in the U.S.
