USW Live: May Day, Immigrant Workers and COVID-19

This May Day – International Workers Day – we’re reminded of the horrible impact of the current pandemic, with millions suffering furloughs and layoffs, and tens of thousands dying as a result of infection. Too many healthcare workers and others doing essential work are risking infection every day for lack of PPE and other important safety precautions. Join USW Education Department’s Guillermo Perez with two of the labor movement’s leading advocates for the health and well-being of immigrant workers – Yanira Merino, National President of the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA), and Alvina Yeh, Executive Director of the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance (APALA), as they report on the on-going fight for immigrant rights in midst of this pandemic.
