CENTRO: Puerto Ricans in New York - Voices of the Migration

Delgado speaks about how she became the chair lady of her shop, what that entails, and the overall work and pay structure of the garment shops.  She discusses the rise of piece work in Pennsylvania as a result of the closure of the coal mines, and how that impacted the work and pay in the shops in New York. Gloria Maldonado speaks at the end about garment worker jobs being lost to overseas imports (beginning at 00:07:13).
