Human Rights in San Quintin.

A leading Mexican senator comments on the results of a fact-finding mission on human rights in the agro-export fields in San Quintin, where laborers live “in conditions similar to the ones in the XVIII or XIX centuries.”

Guest: Sen. Angélica de la Peña, Chair, Human Rights Commission of Mexico’s Senate, Mexico City.

Also, Fighting Wage Theft. State senators in California held hearings on a bill to protect low-wage workers and target companies that cheat workers and commit wage theft, a problem that “has reached epidemic proportions in California.”

Guest: Lilia García Brower, Executive Director, Maintenance Cooperation Trust Fund, Los Angeles, www.janitorialwatch.org
