    A moment with ... Linda Chavez-Thompson, AFL-CIO executive vice president
    Linda Chavez-Thompson joined the work force at 10, weeding cotton fields in South Texas for 30 cents an hour.

    Nearly 50 years later, she stands as perhaps the most powerful woman in the U.S. labor movement -- the executive vice president of the AFL-CIO.

    After leaving school at 16, Chavez-Thompson worked her way up the ranks of organized labor, starting in 1967 as a bilingual secretary in a local union hall.

    The Seattle Post-Intelligencer spent some time with Chavez-Thompson on the eve of her visit to Seattle for the Biennial Convention for the Coalition of Labor Union Women.
