An illustrated presentation about immigration and the labor movement by David Bacon

365 Fifth Avenue

David Bacon, well-known chronicler of globalization and its impact on working people, including most recently Illegal People and The Right to Stay Home, examines the impact of trade agreements and market liberalization on immigrant workers and the movements they have organized to defend their rights. He looks at what the influx of unaccompanied children from Central America has taught us about how our system functions, and argues that the U.S. labor movement is an invaluable ally, given its own experience of the impact of the global economy, labor migration and trade policy.
