They recognize that our economy makes them work twice as hard for mu ch less in return.\n\nOn top of being saddled with significant student deb t\, young people are forced to fight for underpaid jobs with stagnant wage s\, meager benefits and low job stability—all while corporations and the r ichest Americans continue to rake in an outsized proportion of income shar e.\n\nSo it makes sense that workers younger than 35 are organizing unions at their jobs more than other age groups. Support for unions is higher no w than it has been in decades—with young workers ages 18–34 leading the en thusiasm. Unions remain the single best tool for addressing income inequal ity and turning bad jobs into good ones. And as union density increases\, income inequality decreases.\n\nThe PRO Act is critically important to all middle- and low-income workers\, and especially younger workers. This his toric bill would ensure that young people can continue to join together to make their jobs better\, and form a union if they choose—free from employ er intimidation and scare tactics.

How do we all commit to stop treating Asian American workers as disposab le\, perpetual foreigners or invisible?\n\nOur labor movement fights hard for workers’ rights. How do we build a labor movement that fights just as hard to end anti-Asian racism? \n\nAttend the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance’s (APALA’s) town hall to hear from leaders across the labor move ment and pledge to build a more equitable labor movement for all workers.  DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20210512T150000 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20210512T160000 LAST-MODIFIED:20210511T195049Z LOCATION:RSVP for this event.[caption align='center'][[{'fid':'26739'\,'vie w_mode':'default'\,'fields':{'class':'media-element file-teaser'\,'data-de lta':'1'}\,'type':'media'\,'field_deltas':{'1':{'class':'media-element fil e-teaser'\,'data-delta':'1'}}\,'attributes':{'height':'288'\,'width':'513' \,'style':'background-color: transparent\;'\,'class':'media-element file-d efault'\,'data-delta':'1'}}]][/caption] SUMMARY:APALA Labor Town Hall on Anti-Asian Racism URL;TYPE=URI: an-racism END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTAMP:20211220T082249Z CREATED:20210427T144100Z DESCRIPTION:The transition to civilian life is difficult\, and a union care er provides a pathway for veterans to achieve the American Dream during th eir transition and beyond.
