“David vs. Goliath”: Warehouse Workers in Alabama Fight Amazon for the Right to Unionize bit.ly/3asVHZt
Teacher Unions: We Want to Reopen Schools as Well, But We Need Vaccines & Resources to Do It Safely bit.ly/3u2oZpP
.@sarahljaffe’s new book “Work Won’t Love You Back” looks at the rise of toxic workplaces and the evolution of the “labor of love” myth. “I think everyone’s job has gotten a lot worse in the past year,” she says. “I think we’re all realizing how much worse things can get.”
Michael Foster, an organizer with @RWDSU, says those fighting to unionize Amazon workers in Alabama face a big challenge. “We, as the union, trying to take on Amazon in a right-to-work state gives you the perfect image of David and Goliath.”
Amazon workers in Bessemer, Alabama, are leading a historic union drive to demand better working conditions. “We need an even playing field,” says Jennifer Bates, a worker organizing with @BAmazonUnion. “We want to be treated like people and not ignored when we have issues.”
The impact of the pandemic and ability to reopen schools has fallen “along the lines of race, racism, equity and inequity,” says @CTULocal1’s @stacydavisgates. “Guidelines are one thing. The implementation and then the enforcement are quite another.”
Teachers demand safety protocols during the pandemic, including prioritization for vaccines and accommodations for at-risk people. When those conditions are met, "the people who are in school trust it and trust that they’re going to be safe,” says @AFTunion’s @rweingarten.
Up early for a spot on @democracynow talking Work Won't Love You Back and why we keep blaming teachers for schools being unsafe
