The wrong call on dayworkers
Re “Dayworkers, documented: Cellphone program lets laborers blog about their lives,” Sept. 20
A cellphone to document the work of day laborers, to speak their minds and share their stories? Are you kidding me? For the “$40,000 worth of cellphones to train laborers … from a mix of grants,” the organization should have opened some classrooms to teach these immigrants English. That would have made more sense; then they would have a chance of getting a better job and living a better life.
When I came to this country, nobody gave me anything for free.
