As Labor Struggles, Have the Big Rights and Liberties Groups Like the ACLU Deserted Unions?
Continued from previous page
Stunned by the fact that the ACLU didn’t even include “labor” or “equality” among the 114 “key topics” listed, I called and then wrote to the ACLU asking for comment.
> Here is the response I received from Molly Kaplan, the media relations liaison at the American Civil Liberties Union:
Labor rights are certainly a key issue for the ACLU; it is folded into our work for free speech, immigrants’ rights and women’s rights. If you look into the pages for those issues, you will find that labor rights have a presence. Let us know if we can be of any further assistance.
Well, at least someone has labor rights.
