    Hilda Solis: Defending Working People in 2011


    by GRITtv

    "I do see flickers of hope, I see that there's an organic movement going on in Wisconsin, across the country," said Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, "It's time to get activated, It's time to let our elected officials know what we want in terms of better working conditions and a better, fair playing field for everyone. Not just those at the top, but those at the bottom and the middle." Laura spoke with Secretary Solis at the Triangle Fire memorial on Friday about sweatshop conditions then and now, whether we can expect prosecutions for those responsible for the deaths of Massey coal mine and BP workers, and what we can do to help protect working people, U.S. citizens or not. "Get involved, volunteer, go out there and organize and make sure those people get off of the sidewalk and onto the street." Distributed by Tubemogul.
