You're Invited to Write for “Taking Back Labor Day”

Share this post

This September Workplace Fairness and the Today’s Workplace Blog will be hosting our second annual “Taking Back Labor Day” blog carnival.  Since last Labor Day our blog has been relaunched and improved and our website continues to grow.  This year we were nominated for a Webby Award for Best Law Site and have increased our number of website visitors annually to over 400,000.  Today’s Workplace is a source for commentary and discussion on the most important issues in labor and employment facing workers today.

Labor Day should be a time to remind people of why the labor movement is still important and to discuss and take inventory of critical issues affecting workers.  We are inviting you to write an original blog for Labor Day.  A few broad topics we’d like to touch on are as follows:

* Why is the labor movement still important?
* How can it be further revitalized?
* How can unions and employment lawyers work together more closely to advance the rights of workers?
* What things should the Obama administration be focusing on with regard to the labor movement?
* In 5, 10, 15 years, what will be the most important workplace issue to consider on Labor Day?
* Given the state of our economy and all that has happened since late 2008, what part should the labor movement play and how will it change?

Last year we ended up with 35 guest bloggers for “Taking Back Labor Day” and this year we hope to make it even bigger.  If you do not have time to write an original piece we would also be happy to crosspost from your ‘home’ blogs if you would like to send something.  Also we encourage all our contributors and readers to make comments and really turn the blogs into a conversation. Perhaps through this effort more people will remember that Labor Day is not just a good day to go shopping, but a day, as Peter McGuire put it circa 1882, to honor those “who from rude nature have delved and carved all the grandeur we behold.”

If you have any questions please feel free to contact Paula Brantner at [email protected]. Articles can be sent as word documents to the aforementioned email address or if you are familiar with blog publishing we can set up a user account for you.  If you would like to post a blog that is pertinent to our audience but not specific to Labor Day you are welcome to send it and we will post it later in the month. 

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Shannon Lichtenberg & Paula Brantner

Women's Equality Day – Continuing the Fight

Share this post

Eighty-nine years after women finally won the right to vote, we honor the past success of the women’s suffrage movement and recommit to today’s continuing fight for equality.

There is still much work to be done. Women still earn less than men, and are still more likely to live in poverty. The lack of workplace policies means it is still difficult for working women, particularly those earning low wages, to meet our dual responsibilities at work and at home. And, even though we’re in the toughest economic times in recent memory, there is still no federal legislation that guarantees the time to care for yourself or your family in times of illness without losing your pay or your job.

Even as we recognize the struggle that won women the right to vote, the fight to win a minimum labor standard of paid sick days is at full pitch. In Milwaukee, 9to5 has filed an appeal to a judge’s ruling to void the sick days ordinance passed by 70 percent of Milwaukee voters last November. And in Washington DC, the Healthy Families Act, federal legislation that would guarantee paid sick days to American workers, is moving in the Congress. 9to5’s members, activists and allies are contacting members of Congress, telling their stories, and helping to build awareness that paid sick days are good for working families, good for the flailing economy, good for business.

Visit www.9to5.org to learn more about how we organize women to speak out to end the pay gap, change work-family policy and win paid sick days.

On this Women’s Equality Day, the legacy of the suffragists who organized women to win the right to vote compels us to recommit to winning equality and justice for working women.

Linda Meric is Executive Director of 9to5, National Association of Working Women, an inclusive multi-racial membership organization founded in 1973 to strengthen the ability of low-income women to win economic justice through grassroots organizing and policy advocacy.

Under Linda’s leadership, 9to5 has won important victories on minimum wage, good jobs, work-family, anti-discrimination, pay equity, welfare, child care and other issues affecting low-income women. Linda has spent more than 30 years as a labor and community organizer. She also serves as an adjunct professor specializing in sexual harassment and other workplace issues.

Linda is a member of the Governor’s Colorado Pay Equity Commission, serves in the leadership of several state and national policy coalitions, and has received several awards for her work with and on behalf of low-income women, including the “Be Bold” Award presented by the Women’s Foundation of Colorado. She was recently appointed to the National Board of Directors of the American Forum, a progressive media organization.
