My information is aimed at getting non-immigrants (or non "economic refugees") to reexamine the misinformation they are getting in the media and from right wing AM talk shows.
The material on immigrants that I use is part of an 8-contact hour labor history class that I am invited to do for apprentices in the B&CT.
I am attaching the whole ball of wax. It is long. Pages 30-35 deal with the issue of immigration. The Immigration material may stand alone, but I use it after having done the ground work by covering on how the economy works, how/why wage earner solidarity is important, and how/what globalization does to pit workers against workers.
As always feedback and new insights into how to improve/change any of the
material are most welcome.
