NY Daily News Ed Board on Carwash Workers Organizing: "Organizing and invoking their labor rights is the American way"

The New York Daily News's editorial board hit a home run today with their editorial on the campaign by New York City carwash workers trying to clean up the industry.

As the editorial says,

"More power to the car wash workers who, in a new push this week, have chosen to exercise their freedom under law to try to organize with the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union.  
"By pooling together and pushing back against unfair and sometimes illegal wages and work conditions — which have been found repeatedly over the years by government watchdogs and nonprofit groups — they can build better lives for themselves and their families."

Check out the full editorial here, and to show your support and keep up to date on the campaign, like the WASH New York page on Facebook.
