 En vísperas del día de acción de gracias LCLAA quiere mostrar su apoyo a todos los trabajadores que han decidido irse a huelga para protestar y poner fin a todos los abusos en el trabajo.   Este Black Friday, miles de trabajadores de Wal-Mart van para protestar contra las malas condiciones de trabajo bajo las que se encuentran. Ellos no piden mucho, pero lo necesario para tener un trabajo digno y una mejor calidad de vida.

¿Qué quieren los trabajadores de la trasnacional más grande del mundo?

Mejores salarios, ¿por qué? El salario promedio es de $8.81 dólares la hora.

Horarios de trabajo justos ¿por qué? Los trabajadores se ven obligados a laborar en horarios "flexibles", lo que significa turnos más cortos que dificulta que organicen su vida diaria familiar. 

Accesibilidad a un sistema de salud, ¿por qué? En dos años, Wal-Mart ha elevado dos veces el número de horas que los empleados de medio tiempo deben de tener para tener beneficios de seguro social y médico.

This black Friday, thousands of Wal-Mart workers will hit the streets to protest the unfair working environment. The workers don’t ask much but the necessary to improve their lives.

Today's post is a guest blog post by Vanessa Gonzalez-Plumhoff, Director of Latino Leadership and Engagement at Planned Parenthood Federation of America. You can email her at Vanessa.Gonzalez@ppfa.org.

It is no surprise that working long hours to provide for our families leaves many of us without the time to make our health care a priority.  Between work, taking care of our families, and paying bills, it’s not only hard finding the time to head to a doctor’s office and sit for hours in a waiting room, but for many, it’s hard to imagine losing pay with the additional stress of the costs of daycare, transportation, and paying for a visit — especially without health insurance.  This is where Planned Parenthood can help. 

Planned Parenthood’s doors are open for all those times when a member of our family, or friend, offers a loving “¿como te sientes?”  Services include a range of preventive services, such as screenings for cancer, testing and treatment of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), birth control, and basic women’s health care, as well as medically accurate sex education to millions of people each year.  Many health centers also provide affordable services on a sliding scale.
