Dear Friends,

I remember sometime ago (a month or so) reading in the NYT about a suit
against Wal-Mart in CA.  It was specifically on the employment of
undocumented workers and their mistreatment.  Any specific reference to
the case, including the press coverage, the background is appreciated,
since I am in the process of putting together a presentation for several
groups interested in learning more (and acting on) about similar
practices on various college campuses.  My intention is to draw a
parallel between Wal-Mart and those subcontractors doing business with
(neo)-liberal arts colleges, including my own.

The goal is to force college administrations adopting an employer code
of conduct, and if needed accept even the financial responsibility, etc.

Thanks in advance.


Here is the press coverage of the problems on my campus:
