Letter to Labor Secretary Solis

I just reported to you that our stars seemed aligned just right to win equal opportunity in workplaces soon for the 14 million Asian Ams. 80-20 is not relaxing, however. Lots of activities are going on.

See below for a letter sent a week ago to Labor Secretary Hilda Solis. She is authorized to enforce equal opportunity for all Americans through Exec. Order 11246. If you live in or close to her Congressional District which includes Monterey Park, CA, you have probably donated and voted for her. Judy Chu is now running for her vacant seat.

Here are the key points of 80-20 Educational Foundation's (EF) letter to Sec. Solis:

"Dear Madame Secretary:

. . . I am requesting a meeting with you concerning a written commitment by President Obama to the Asian American community to provide equal opportunity in workplaces for Asian Americans, when he became the President. His unequivocal commitment is attached below. . . . . .

Then Sen. Obama was deeply moved by the information presented to him by EF which included the following:

"Asian Americans have the least opportunity to enter management when compared with blacks, Hispanics and women; the slowest rate of progress toward equal employment opportunity, despite having the highest educational attainment."

To see the validity of the above statement, please click on and see Tables 1 and 2 and related statements in a full page ad in the Washington Post on 9/6/06. The data and conclusion have been verified, in writing, by EEOC's Chief Statistician Ronald Edwards. If you are interested, I can provide you with a copy of his letter. This ad had also been entered into the Congressional Record by Sen. Tom Carper of Delaware on 9/21/06. . . . . . .

Not a day should be lost in the delivery of equal opportunity to all Americans. Not a day should be lost to help make America "a more perfect Union."

I look forward to hearing from you soon. It will be an honor and a privilege to meet with you and answer your questions.

S. B. Woo, (title) , . . . "

The above is just to keep you posted. You need not take any action. If you happened to correspond or see Sec. Solis, you are naturally welcome to express our yearning for equal opportunity in workplaces ASAP.

See Table 1 to understand how badly we have been discriminated against. See also how firmly President Obama believes in equal opportunity for all Americans in his reply to 80-20's questionnaire.

For feedback to this email, leave your comments for all to read at I'd love to correspond with you. Thank you.

Respectfully yours,

S. B. Woo
President, 80-20 Educational Foundation, Inc.
