Ride for the American Dream – Support Immigrant Workers!
Immigrants in NYC work hard to advance and provide a better future for their families. But some luxury real estate developers like T.F. Cornerstone deny their service workers, (primarily immigrant workers) industry-standard security, retirement, safety-training and advancement opportunities afforded to 55,000 building workers in NYC.
For just $2/hour per worker more, Cornerstone could stop this destructive race to the bottom that stands in the way of the American Dream for many immigrant service workers.
On August 10, 2012, SEIU 32BJ’s Wheels4Workers will Ride for the American Dream to protest the undercutting of standards and opportunities for immigrants by luxury developers like T.F. Cornerstone.
➔ Ride for the American Dream to send a message to Cornerstone that their service workers deserve industry-standard safety-training and advancement opportunities.
➔ Ride for the American Dream to help service workers gain access to industry-standard legal assistance to obtain citizenship.
➔ Ride for the American Dream to help service workers gain access to industry-standard scholarships for their children.
