The wrong call on day­work­ers

Los Angeles Times - - Opinion -

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.
