Giving Tuesday

Today is Giving Tuesday, a day more in the spirit of Thanksgiving than Black Friday where we recognize the great work charities do.

(Of course, many people wouldn’t be so eager for deals if their bosses were more thankful for their labor and properly compensated them.)

This Giving Tuesday, I would like you to consider donating to AWA.

The economy might be booming at the top but wages are stagnant for most people. Despite the Trump tax cuts that were supposed to create jobs, many of the biggest beneficiaries have cut thousands of workers.

These mega-corporations have no interest in helping their workers who are divided and often forced to accept whatever they are given.  This leads workers to struggle endlessly just to make ends meet.

That’s where we come in. We have resolved to address employee misclassification where Independent Contractors or 1099 workers do not receive the benefits they should earn with their labor.

We seek to organize these workers who have nowhere else to go.

Can you contribute $25 to help us launch our organizing effort?

Misclassification of 1099 Workers

With the cold upon us here in New Jersey, I trust you are staying warm.

The election made for a busy October that resulted in a House of Representatives that will look more favorably on labor issues, which we are very happy about. Thus, we did not have our October meeting. But we’re back at it this month.

Our next meeting is next Monday, November 26th at 7 pm at 7 Silvester Court East Brunswick, NJ 08816.

We are beginning to explore addressing employee misclassification whereby workers are called “Independent Contractors” or 1099 workers but treated as regular employees and not given the freedom of an Independent Contractor nor the benefits associated with being a traditional employee. This is a widespread problem in the United States.

We want to explore avenues to organize white-collar independent contractors and initiate legal action on their behalf.

We will also be discussing our efforts at fundraising.

We are also beginning to fundraise to buy campaign materials. Please donate here!
