Undocumented Latino workers are protected in the United States

U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis has signed an agreement with the ambassadors of the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica and El Salvador, which protects the labor rights of migrant workers from these countries who are employed in the United States.

Regardless of their immigration status, workers may seek advice or make reports  ​​confidentially, said Solis.
“With these agreements we want to eliminate those fears. The aim is to simplify. Make it easier for immigrants to report,” explained Solis.

Ambassadors from Mexico, Nicaragua and Guatemala, who previously signed agreements with the Department of Labor, also attended the ceremony as witnesses.

The signing of the accord took place during the beginning of a week celebrating labor rights.

The U. S. is home to about 126,000 Costa Ricans, 1.4 million Dominicans and 1.6 million Salvadorans, according to official estimates from the Pew Hispanic Center for Migration Studies.
