    Hundreds of American workers were recently laid off at Nabisco’s Southwest Side plant in Chicago; 600 to be exact. Those workers were paid a living wage, $25-$26 an hour, and thrived as a part of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers union. Now those jobs are headed to Mexico in an attempt to cut costs via cheap, outsourced labor.
