This year on May 1, May Day, immigrant workers in Los Angeles are doing more than marching for immigrants’ rights, they are taking action at work. Hotel workers, janitors, LAX airport workers and sanitation workers will all hold May Day actions at their workplaces that will culminate with the annual march for immigrants’ rights in downtown L.A. in the late afternoon.
On this May Day of Action, join sanitation and recyclying workers at American Reclamation (pictured above) who do the dirty work of sorting through commerical waste. They are treated worse than the garbage they sort. Poverty wages. Hazardous working conditions. No benefits. Firings.
These workers want a union. On May Day, we will rally with them at American Reclamation to support their fight for a union.
WHEN: Tuesday, May 1, 2012 at 11:00AM
WHERE: American Reclamation located at 4560 Doran St., Los Angeles, CA 90039
