Good labor policy is good immigration policy and it started with Ceaser Chavez

Summery:Workplace justice affects immigration policy because of supply and demand or in other words productivity. Today most of our sectors in economy are relied on exploited immigrant workers, particularly undocumented workers. Historically, labor and immigration policies came out naturally by the constant demand of fairness by the low-wage workers which was started by Cesar Chavez 50 years ago and an affirmative response from the larger society.  Throughout our shared history, we are slowly progressing towards labor fairness and improvement of labor practices for the working families.  In spite of the improvement to become a more equitable society than ever before, new problems still arise.  We still need more laws and reforms directed toward the employers and international contractors.  These laws and reforms will protect immigrant workers and the undocumented workers as well as to prevent labor trafficking.  These laws and reforms will also develop "free trade" and "fair trade" thereby producing free flow of goods and production.  
 As we celebrate labor day, we should remember the plight of the working people which was started by Cesar Chavez.   The plight and struggle for workplace fairness.  This will ultimately shape our society for the better or worse. 


Connection : This connects to our immigration unit because it shows us we need more laws that helps everybody and make sure everyone is safe from the injustice for exploiting workers. Also help solve immigration problems. 

Discussion topic: Why do you think we need more laws and reforms about immigration and labor laws? What types of reforms would you like to have pass? Will the laws and reforms help/solve immigration problems.

  1. I think we need more laws about labor laws because we need to remain humanitarian towards workers because they are humans as well. For example, the minimum wage law makes it so that employers cannot be paying workers too little to live off of; that would be deemed unethical and maybe even unconstitutional.

  2. I also think we need more laws like this because they not only help the illegal immigrants and their rights but it helps the united states with free and fair trade that they provide

  3. We need better working conditions for the laborers and more money because these people live off the buckets they pick and have their kids work. The laws and reforms will not only protect the workers but also the provide the country with free trade.

  4. I think we need more laws in labor works because labor work itself is a very dangerous job since it doesn't have much or any safety measures . Labor workers today are still not getting the treatment they deserve. We need to have more laws that point towards a more friendly and fair environment while also getting more pay since the pay off for immigrant labor workers is very low. If we manage to do that than it would encourage workers to work hard while also helping the workers themselves and/or their families.

  5. I think that we need more laws and reforms about immigration because they will help set a standard for the minimum wage and hours of work an immigrant can exert each day. These laws will protect immigrants rights as well as entitle them to a fair pay without overworking them. I'd like to see reforms pass for a safe and healthy working environment for immigrants. This will prevent laborers from taking advantage of illegal immigrants by not using them for free labor. These laws will help immigrants be entitled to their own rights and encourage them to find work to support their families.

  6. I think we need more laws and reforms about immigration and labor laws because it will help immigrants live a steady lifestyle in America. It will create more fairness for the immigrants because they will have better payments and protected working rights. I would like to see more healthy working environment reforms passed for immigrants. The reforms will help protect immigrants and give them more rights so that they are not used for free labor. It will also support immigrants financially, giving them a better life in America.
