Univision’s Primer Impacto Investigates Dangerous Road for Port Drivers
Some 88,000 port drivers keep our economy moving each day, with 16,800 mostly Latino immigrants in the Los Angeles and Long Beach ports alone. Most are victims of an exploitive, highly-polluting industry that has used a loophole in the law for decades to misclassify them as independent contractors. This tactic — which has been the subject of a California Attorney General crackdown — allows trucking companies to deny the drivers basic rights including access to health care, retirement benefits, worker compensation and skirt work rules and safety regulations.
