HAYWARD, Calif. - "When I heard about NBC Contractors denying workers their rights and the pay they deserve, I thought about my father, and the struggles he went through when he emigrated from China 25 years ago and became a construction worker. He didn't work for NBC, but he faced similar struggles. Due to limited English and education, and the lack of opportunities for new immigrants, he had a hard struggle to support his family."
