Cesar Chavez Day 2017: A black eye for the Chavez legacy
The ALRB and UFW are so openly against farmworkers that they have damaged Cesar Chavez’s legacy.
On the week of Cesar Chavez Day, the state agency and union earned the following headlines:
- “Corruption and collusion in California labor board,” Forbes, March 26.
- “Farmworker union underpaid its own workers, judge rules,” Los Angeles Times, March 30.
- “The ALRB and UFW: Partners in crime,” Fresno Bee, March 30.
Pick Justice illustrated the tragedy on its new website, CesarChavezDay.com. We posted an iconic image of the UFW founder, looking as if someone punched him in the eye.
The labor movement Chavez founded is now coming to an end, brought down by the Chavez family members and cronies who milked his legacy and drove the UFW into the ground.
All that’s saving the UFW now is its government enforcer, the ALRB.
In the illustration, “Arturito” refers to Arturo Rodriguez, a Chavez in-law, who heads the UFW.
