Connie = a woman's name

Commie = Communist

 

How about "pinko" (Communist)?

 

The Los Angeles area has a lot of Asians and Central Americans working in sweatshops, mainly in the garment industry.  The Salvadoran community is quite large (even years after the Salvadoran Civil War), but I don't know if they are involved in migrant work.  I was a kid in Arizona during the "Bracero Program".  Braceros were Mexican farm workers in the USA legally.
