PLEASE PLUG THE 86 RESTAURANT STRUGGLE: A Fund Helping Struggling And Out Of Work Restaurant Workers

Restaurants in the U.S. are in an “economic free fall” amid the ongoing spike in coronavirus cases and the forced shutdowns, with almost 20% of dining establishments around the country having closed permanently since the start of the pandemic. This has left thousands of restaurant workers struggling to survive, many unable to pay even the most basic bills and put food on the table. In the absence of any substantial government relief and a gridlock in state unemployment agencies, it is incumbent on us within the community to help one another.

All of the funds raised will be re-distributed directly to restaurant workers, via checks and electronic platforms, who have either lost their job or are in need of a small leg-up to cover rent payments, medical bills, childcare or any other day-to-day help.

A backend admin team of volunteers will double-check and confirm references, precious employers and more to ensure the process is honest and transparent.

DC Attorney General brings lawsuit against Amazon calling it a monopoly

D.C. Attorney General Karl A. Racine yesterday brought a lawsuit against Amazon, which alleged its abusing what it argues is monopoly power leading to higher prices for consumers, as Rachel Lerman and I reported yesterday. Racine accused the company of fixing prices through the terms and agreements it has with third-party sellers. The suit alleges that Amazon prevents them from selling their products at lower prices on any other online platforms, leading to “artificially high” prices across the Internet.–MSN.com

AFL-CIO Endorses Right to Work Protections… for Mexican Workers?

Published

on

By

The nation’s largest labor federation, the AFL-CIO, came out recently in favor of “right to work” protections—but only for workers in Mexican factories. The AFL-CIO made the announcement as it actively tries to take away those work protections from U.S. workers who already have them.

The labor federation alleged in a press release last week that Tridonex, an auto parts factory in the Mexican city of Silao and a subsidiary of Philadelphia-based Cardone Industries, violated the rights of workers who were trying to vote out a corrupt union. Two days later, President Joe Biden’s U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) announced it would seek a review of the factory for violating the labor rights provisions of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) on trade.

How, precisely, were the workers’ rights violated? According to the AFL-CIO’s press release, “Tridonex has refused workers’ legal demand to stop withholding their dues and transferring them to the protection union.”

Ensuring workers have the right to withhold paying dues to a union they don’t support is the definition of the right to work. That is literally all the laws do: Leave it up to the individual worker to decide whether to back a union. Nothing in the laws prevent workers from voluntarily joining unions they favor.
