From Occupy Kensington and Golden Farm Justice:
The Golden Farm workers' courageous effort is part of a citywide movement that has been going on over the past decade made up of low-wage workers, many of them new immigrants, to stand up against the rampant exploitation that takes place in many industries and demand that they be treated fairly, legally, and decently as valued workers and members of our communities.
Meet workers and find out more about the vibrant new wave of organizing that's taking place in Kensington and beyond with Professor Immanuel Ness of Brooklyn College and the CUNY Graduate Center for Worker Education and author of Immigrants, Unions, and the New U. S. Labor Market. Professor Ness has been actively documenting these important and exciting developments for the past 15 years and has much to share about the history of workers and communities coming together in the fight for fairness—where we have come from and where we can go together.
