Reviving the Latino Workforce: Complex Problems Demand Comprehensive Solutions

Source: Labor Council for Latin American Advancement, June 17, 2009

From the press release:
The Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA) released a critical White Paper entitled “Reviving the Latino Workforce: Complex Problems Demand Comprehensive Solutions” examining the role that Latino workers can play in revitalizing the U.S. economy, along with how policy makers, political leader and law-makers can best support them.

This White Paper offers a set of critical arguments to inter-relate the imperative of achieving the passage of progressive legislation like the Employee Free Choice Act, immigration and national health care reform combined with the national priority of an economic stimulus process that addresses both the priorities and needs of Latino workers – native-born and immigrant, including the undocumented. Although politically daunting, the priorities are ultimately complementary and merit immediate attention by both Congress and the Administration.
