Immigrant Worker Protest, Friday Morning

Dear Friends,

20 Latino workers were dismissed/walked out of Lotus International Company. They were not paid overtime, faced discrimination and health and safety issues, and were forced into a pay decrease with a higher production rate. When they complained yesterday, they were fired and immediately replaced. They want to demand the overtime pay they are owed for several years of work, want their jobs back and want to maintain their higher level of pay.

Please join them at their picket line at 7am this Friday morning (April 21). We are meeting at La Sed at 6am (on the corner of Clark and Vernor in SW Detroit) to caravan to the company. You may join us at La Sed or meet us at the factory. The address is 6880 Commerce Blvd, Canton, MI 48187.

They want as much support as possible, but they also want to keep it enough on the down low so that the company will be surprised at their picket.

Please foward to your lists.
