Suburban Sweatshops: The Fight for Immigrant Rights

Suburban Sweatshops: The Fight for Immigrant Rights

Alexandra Delano, of Oxford University, reviews Suburban Sweatshops: The Fight for Immigrant Rights. The book is about the increase in immigrants in suburban America as opposed to urban areas and the reemergence of what the author describes as “sweatshop labor.” The author focuses her study on Latino immigrants, mainly from El Salvador, in Long Island, New York. In traditional, conservative, suburban communities on Long Island, many oppose immigration; in this environment, the author discusses the challenges faced by immigrant advocates and emphasizes the importance of inclusiveness.
