Justin Akers Chacon: The Case for Opening th Border and Why Doesn’t the NLRB Cover Ag and Domestice Workers? Might I Have to Do with Race?

Justin Akers Chacon author of The Border Crossed Us argues that our polices of open borders for goods and closed borders for people hurt all American workers. He makes the case for opening the U.S.-Mexico border. Then did you ever wonder why the law that protects the right to organize excludes ag and domestic workers? We’ll ask Professor Juan Perea from Loyola law school in Chicago if it has anything to do with race. We’ll have a labor song of the month too.
