An article in the Columbia Spectator highlights the need for unions for international student workers. The article discusses how few safeguards exist to ensure international student workers are not forced to work without rest or fired for no reason, given that they can be deported without appeal.
"Without a strong union, international students will only receive gestures of goodwill with little guarantee of material commitments to needed protections. In response to a xenophobic state and vacillating universities, we have no choice but to organize."
