Brett Kavanaugh Once Sided With an Anti-Union Company That Scapegoated Undocumented Workers

People working at a meat distribution warehouse in Brooklyn were tired of working for unsustainable compensation without health insurance, paid holidays or overtime pay, so they decided to come together to improve their jobs. Their company immediately threatened and fired individuals for their support of a union, but they persisted in wanting to achieve a better workplace. In 2005 they voted to join together to form a union, yet their bosses refused to negotiate with them. After the workers took the company to court, it claimed it had no obligation to honor its employees’ union because some of the people it hired were undocumented immigrants.
