Julie Su Celebrates Thai Garment Workers at Department of Labor’s Hall of Honor Ceremony

Julie Su (’94), Acting U.S. Secretary of Labor, was quoted by NBC News honoring a group of Thai garment workers she represented who exposed their former employer’s abuse as modern-day slavery (“Former Enslaved Calif. Sweatshop Worker Recalls Captivity, Honored by Labor Dept.” Sep. 22). “The most profound changes are personal. Like our honorees, standing up, building power, exercising their rights, and against all odds defying the message they have heard their entire lives: that they should just keep their heads down and know their place.”
