This song is dedicated to Santiago,a carwash worker leader who was fired and beaten up for trying to organize his co-workers. Prior to the beating, Santiago had been approached by his employer whom offered him better wages in exchange for him to stop organizing his coworkers. Santiago rejected the offer and lived up to his principles. The song encourages carwasheros to overcome their fears and continue to organize for dignity, respect, and for better wages and working conditions.  If Gandhi, King and Chávez were alive, they would be fighting alongside the carwasheros, the song says.

"Carwashero" is a salsa song.
