The LA Fed is working everyday to build a strong movement of workers for generations to come.
Critical to that is ensuring that the over one million undocumented immigrants in LA have a voice at the workplace and access to quality wages and safe working conditions.
In order to support LA’s diverse workers, the LA Fed in partnership with the Miguel Contreras Foundation, has created a network of over 100 attorneys dedicated to serving our immigrant sisters and brothers. Additionally, through Labor’s Task Force on Immigration, the LA Fed brings together local unions to develop innovative approaches to serving immigrant workers. Our campaign victories like Prop. JJJ and LA Raise the Wage helped families secure better wages, safety, and respect in the workplace. And by successfully pushing LA to create a wage enforcement agency, we protected vulnerable immigrant workers from wage theft.
The LA Fed’s Executive Secretary-Treasurer Rusty Hicks said:
“We remain united with the 1,000,000 undocumented immigrants in LA County as we fight together in the courts, Congress, and the streets to demand dignity and protections for all working people.”
LA is a city of immigrants. Angelenos come from more than 140 countries and speak 224 individual languages. If America’s strength comes from diversity, then LA is one of the strongest cities in the country. And yet there are those who would exploit fear and bigotry to try and divide us. They will not succeed.
