Secretary of Labor Honors Controversial Union Boss


Labor Secretary Hilda Solis has named the auditorium of the United Farm Workers union after legendary socialist Cesar Chavez, according to the Washington Examiner: 

Chavez, who died in 1993, co-founded the UFW with Democratic Socialists of America honorary co-chair Dolores Huerta, to fight for fair wages for migrant workers. 

Solis, accompanied by Vice President Biden’s wife Jill, gave a speech at the auditorium on Monday honoring Chavez and Huerta, who was in attendance:

Dolores worked mano a mano with one of the most celebrated icons of the American civil rights movement: the great César Estrada Chávez, who was inducted into our Hall of Honor in 1998.
