Happy Labor Day!

Happy belated Labor Day!

We were busy marching in parades in Paterson and Newark! It is important to remember that Labor Day is more than a time to merely mark the end of summer or get a discount, but a time to remember the hard-fought victories that enabled us to live a better life and those that won them.

Our next meeting is on September 25th at 7 pm. Please join us as we discuss our efforts at outreach, legal assistance, and publishing a policy report that aims to highlight issues with precarious workers struggling to survive as inequality increases.

An Update

We hope you’re enjoying the end of your summer.

We’re planning to march in the annual American Labor Museum Paterson Labor Day parade on Sunday, September 2nd.

Hey,

We hope you’re enjoying the end of your summer.

We’re planning to march in the annual American Labor Museum Paterson Labor Day parade on Sunday, September 2nd. The line up starts at 11:30 am and the parade starts at 1:30 pm at the National Landmark Botto House on 83 Norwood Street, Haledon, NJ 07508. North Jersey has a rich history of labor activity especially in the early 20th century and we’d like to honor that history in part by marching.

The parade will feature many potential allies and it would be a great show of support if we have a large contingent marching.

We are also investigating labor issues at colleges to determine the feasibility of a campaign to improve conditions. Many universities are being run like corporations to detriment of all but the administrators. More and more classes are taught by adjunct professors who cannot survive on the meager wages they are paid at the same time that the price of tuition is soaring through the roof. So opinions and connections to professionals working on college campuses are welcomed. Being an adjunct professor should not be a precarious position.

Enjoy your weekend, brought to you by the Labor movement.

In solidarity,

Dan
