    New low-wage earners center opens - By JO-ANN MORIARTY, The Republican, MA
    'My study found very few examples of true partnerships between unions and worker centers,' Fine said. 'The fact that we are standing here today with the national AFL-CIO, the state Federation of Labor and the Carpenters' Union, and the fact that Casa Obrera will be a chartered affiliate of the Pioneer Valley AFL-CIO from its inception makes it a unique case.'

    Sandy Felder, the Northeast Regional Director of the AFL-CIO, said that out of the more than 500,000 construction jobs last year, two out of three workers were immigrants.
