EPISODE 29: Latinx Forest Workers

In this episode, Manuel Machado, Martha Valle Hernandez, and Carl Wilmsen discuss what steps are being taken in order to improve working conditions for latinx forest workers in Oregon.

“You and I can change jobs if we don’t like the working conditions, but visa workers can’t… It’s a really big problem and it’s difficult. It’s systemic.”

– Carl Wilmsen, Director of the Northwest Forest Workers Center
