Those who want to keep up with developments in Cuba, can do worse than reading the Miami Herald. After reading Mr. Calzon’s article yesterday, I am writing to encourage the Herald’s editors to look into labor conditions in Cuba and to take an editorial position on such an important matter.
Labor unions in the United States are no longer as important as they once were, but in America one may count on newspapers, radio, and television stations and all kinds of professional organizations – as well as our state assemblymen, senators and congressman – to insist on fair wages and to attempt to bring to an end the worst abuses, by exposing them.
If President Obama were to focus on labor and worker issues in Cuba, his new efforts will be well received beyond business and investment circles.
