The work experiences of Filipino and Mexican immigrants

This week we are discussing the ways Filipino and Mexican immigrants are inserted into the U.S. economy. Not only did I discuss how immigrant workers fare, I introduced students to the organizations that fight for their rights. Of course, I highlighted the work of the National Alliance for Filipino Concerns with whom I have worked for many years. Most recently I worked in support of its organizing of caregivers. I also discussed the work being done by the National Domestic Workers Alliance and the National Day Laborer Organizing Network. All three alliances have great websites, moreover there are lots of videos produced by and about them that can be useful for students. Image
