Professor Ruben Garcia Featured on KNPR Regarding University Forum Lecture

Ruben J. Garcia is a Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On Sept. 5, he was featured on KNPR's State of Nevada in a segment titled Boosting Marginal Workers. In the segment, Professor Garcia discussed some of the labor law issues he will address during tonight's University Forum lecture, titled Marginal Workers: The Politics of Workplace Reform. The event, which begins at 7:30 p.m. inside the Marjorie Barrick Museum, is free and open to the public.

During the KNPR segment, when asked who the most marginal workers are, Professor Garcia responded, "Immigrant workers, which make up a large share of the workforce. They also, by definition, are not voting; and so they have that lack of political power. They have to participate politically often through unions or other civic organizations. So that is a place in which I think that you see a lot of violations of labor law."

In addition to KNPR, the Las-Vegas Review-Journal and Desert Companion recently featured Professor Garcia's University Forum lecture.

A recognized expert in the field of labor and employment law, Professor Garcia teaches Labor Law, Employment Law, Constitutional Law, and Professional Responsibility at the Boyd School of Law. He has been quoted in the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Las Vegas Review-Journal, among others, and has appeared on national and local radio and television programs.
