From Hollywood Writers to Delivery Drivers, Workers Are Fed Up With the Gradual Devaluation of Their Professions
Posted On: May 30, 2023
May 30, 2023 | COMMENTARY | […] You may not think a Hollywood writer and a UPS driver or package handler have much in common, but the struggles they are currently facing highlight how the fight for labor rights is one that we must all engage in – regardless of what we do. … These workers aren’t just fighting for better pay and benefits for themselves. They are also fighting to protect the future of their professions so that newer and younger workers get the same opportunities they got. Throughout the revived labor movement, there is tremendous solidarity within and across unions. A recognition that their lots are tied together. In short, workers are united in ways unseen for decades. Unfortunately, Washington is letting workers down when they need support the most. Fortune
