Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month, the AFL-CIO will be profiling leaders and activists to spotlight the diverse contributions Hispanics and Latinos have made to the labor movement. Today's profile features Aldo Gomez.
Aldo Gomez is a first-generation American, and his family is originally from Guatemala. He recently led a Pipeline and Pawprints fundraiser, where he raised nearly $10,000 to save dogs and cats from euthanasia. He coordinated the donations with his company, which matched member donations dollar for dollar. In his job, Gomez plans and oversees distribution projects to help ensure safe operations.
