LABOR DAY SPECIAL. A top labor leader comments on recent child farm labor regulations proposed by the Secretary of Labor, recent laws slashing labor rights in Wisconsin, Indiana, and other states, and working conditions of Latinos nationwide. Also, the United Farm Workers reach California’s state capitol after a two-week march to demand overtime pay, protection from exposure to dangerous pesticides, and the reconsideration of a bill that would make it easier for farm laborers to join a union. The bill was recently vetoed by California governor Edmund “Jerry” Brown.
