UIC Latino Cultural Center presents The Hand That Feeds

Thursday, November 17, 3:30pm
University of Illinois at Chicago Latino Cultural Center
FREE and open to the public
Post-screening discussion facilitated by Xóchitl Bada, Associate Professor, UIC LALS Program

Residents of New York’s Upper East Side get bagels and coffee served with a smile 24 hours a day. But behind the scenes, undocumented immigrant workers face sub-legal wages, dangerous machinery, and abusive managers who will fire them for calling in sick.

Risking deportation and the loss of their livelihoodsandwich maker Mahoma López and his co-workers fight back and form an independent union. If they can win a contract, it will set a historic precedent for low-wage workers across the country. But whatever happens, they will never be exploited again.

Screening followed by discussion facilitated by
Xóchitl Bada, Associate Professor, Latin American and Latino Studies (LALS) program.

All audiences are welcome to join us at this program. Captioning, ASL Interpretation and Audio-Description services will be available upon request.
