Stamford workers bring fight to mayor's home

A group of workers took their fight for fair wages to the home of the Stamford mayor Saturday. Standing on his doorstep, the group of blue-collar workers known as Southern Connecticut Immigration Reform told Mayor Dan Malloy (D-Stamford) they can't afford to make ends meet. They say all they want is a fair wage and the opportunity to work, that was taken away when Stamford day laborers were given a safe haven. Malloy told the Stamford Advocate, "I don't maintain the borders of the United States. If I did, I would do a better job than [the Bush] administration does. [The group] needs to go the White House and picket the president's house, not mine." The group says the mayor's response is a cop-out and is outraged by the city's "hassle-free work zones" for the migrant workers. Southern Connecticut Immigration Reform started as an online blog but decided to join together and make their voices heard.
