S805: Power to the People! Understanding Labor Unions in Splash Spring 2023 (Apr. 29, 2023)
Have you ever wondered how we got weekends, fair wages, and safe working conditions? It's all thanks to the hard work and dedication of the labor movement! In this class, we'll explore the history of labor and the struggles that workers faced to improve their lives. We’ll participate in activities that will help us understand how unions work, the role they play in protecting workers' rights, and how they negotiate with employers. We'll also explore how the lessons of the labor movement apply to our daily lives. From standing up for ourselves and others to advocating for fair treatment, we'll learn how to use the tools of the labor movement to create positive change in our communities.
