          Growers Move to Gut California&#039;s Farm Labor Law
    
          April 13, 2015
    
          Hundreds marched to the Los Angeles City Council last October, to support a resolution supporting a farm worker union fight. Hardly anyone had heard of the company involved. Gerawan Farming, one of the country's largest growers, with 5,000 people picking grapes and peaches, is challenging the California law that makes farm workers' union rights enforceable.   Lining up behind Gerawan are national anti-union think tanks. A local struggle now has much higher stakes.

          Proposed California Law Could Overturn Minimum Wage Increases for Tens of Thousands Across State
    
          April 13, 2015
    
          Capital and Main has confirmed that a proposed California law could upend existing minimum wage laws across the state, potentially rolling back wage increases for tens of thousands of people. If passed, the legislation could invalidate wage hikes approved by voters in some of the state’s largest cities, including San Francisco and Oakland.

          Workers Making Nike and Adidas Shoes in Vietnam: Strike!
    
          April 13, 2015
    
          Guardian is WRONG!  Just after media reports, Vietnamese General Confederation of Labor (VGCL) affiliated union members successfully ended the strike.  Vietnam unions play an official role to formulate, vote and implement labor policy and other policies via Communist Party, National Assembly, regional/local government and state agencies as well as negotiate workplace contracts.  This successful strike resulted in improved interpretations of social insurance policy.

          Will the Senate Kill the Iran Deal and Take Us Into Another War?
    
          April 13, 2015
    
          The GOP (with aid from some hawkish Democrats) is intent on killing any possibility of a final agreement with Iran on its nuclear program. They hope to put together a veto-proof majority to pass the Nuclear Agreement Review Act - S.615, introduced by Senators Bob Corker (R-TN) and Robert Menendez (D-NJ), that will torpedo any agreement reached with Iran.  Take Action Now!
