We all do it, and we all have certain expectations about it. We expect to be paid. We expect to receive fair treatment. We expect that if we work hard, we’ll have access to greater opportunities and better jobs.
Today, May Day, is a day to honor workers. Thousands of people are coming together to assert that we don’t believe in a "subclass" of workers. We believe that hard working immigrants deserve protection from unscrupulous employers and should not be paid less than minimum wage.
But if we’re not careful, conservative forces could succeed in creating a subclass of workers who are paid and treated differently than the rest of us. How? They want to strike down crucial citizenship provisions in the immigration reform bill that’s currently being debated.
Call Congress today and tell them that you support immigration reform. Tell them you support equal protection and reject second-class status for workers.
Immigration reform supporters are taking to the streets in over 70 events across the country today to remind the Senate that aspiring Americans deserve a path to citizenship. The bill that has been introduced is an encouraging first step, but it is important that the pathway isn’t too long, the fines aren’t too high, and barriers aren’t too steep.
As the Senate Debates the content of the bill, it is vital that we let them know we stand behind workers and their families. A pathway to citizenship is a guarantee that everyone will be afforded the same protections and that unscrupulous employers will not be allowed to exploit loopholes to drive down wages.
It appears they also LIE in order to cut in line. Dump SEIU endorsed Boris Obama
TO PUT IT VERY SIMPLY… YES!
It appears the House is consumed with Benghazi, but aren’t the economy, and jobs, and the debt some serious, immediate problems that this country faces?
When are Republicans going to start fixating on real problems that affect millions of Americans, and actually do something to help?
After all, we’ve already had these investigations:
the Federal Bureau of Investigation (opened September 2012 – ongoing)
Five House Committees (Armed Services, Foreign Affairs, Intelligence, Judiciary, and Oversight and Government Reform) initiated their own inquiries (opened October 2012 – ongoing)
Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs (October 2012 – report delivered December 31, 2012)
State Department Accountability Review Board (opened October 4, 2012 – report delivered December 20, 2012)
Aren’t EIGHT investigations enough?
@ several answers: I can’t help but remember during the gun control debates how conservatives were so angry that we were being "distracted" from the economy and jobs; and now, it’s conservatives who are distracting us with the "IRS" and the "AP phone" story.
Never because they are the grand obstructionist party! Unless you have a weekly six figure income and donate faithfully to the republican national committee they don’t care about you!
