Following on the heels of similar strikes in recent weeks in New York and Chicago, hundreds of St. Louis area fast food restaurant employees walked off the job May 9, which affected more than 30 area businesses including a number of fast food franchise businesses. The strikes spread to Detroit on May 10. These employees joined a growing wave of protests over wages and other terms and conditions of employment in what is one of the fastest-growing segments in the U.S. labor market. You may even remember similar actions by Wal-Mart employees on Black Friday in 2012. Although strikes are often associated with labor unions, the workers involved in these impromptu strikes are not unionized. Instead, the efforts are being supported by a coalition of organizations, including labor groups, nominally coined “alt-labor,” that are not legally unions. But this does not mean that their activities are not protected by U.S. labor laws, specifically the National Labor Relations Act … [Read more...] about Fast Food Restaurant Strikes Spread To St. Louis, Detroit
“You cannot properly appraise the real seriousness of that situation unless you are right there in the city. Everything that frugal men and women put aside for years to save for old age, to get security for themselves – everything that they put aside to make the lot of their children a better one than their own, is now likely to be swept away. There is only one way that you can lighten the load of the municipality and that is to take its debt service off for the time being. Specifically, so that you will understand it, what is it in the city of Detroit? Our budget [this year is] $72,200,000; our tax delinquency is $28,000,000—36 percent…I want to express the opinion to you that in the city of Detroit, next year, there will not be enough income to even pay the fundamental services of government, to keep your schools going, your police and fire departments, your health and welfare departments, let alone to take care of the debt services of that city.”Frank … [Read more...] about Subnational Insolvencies and Beyond: If Detroit Can Be Restructured In A Bankruptcy Proceeding, Why Not Argentina?
In August 2013, employees at more than 1,000 fast-food restaurants in over 50 cities staged work stoppages. Employees took to the streets demanding a wage increase to at least 15 dollars an hour, twice the federal minimum wage. These protests were supported by organized labor as well as community groups such as Justice at Work, a nonprofit organization that provides legal services to support and encourage organization of low-wage immigrant workers. Even though UNITE HERE has traditionally been seen as the main union representing food service workers, it was the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), which represents more than two million workers in health care, janitorial and other industries, that provided financial support and training for local organizers across the country in preparation for the strikes.While the protesters represented a tiny fraction of the fast-food workforce and an even smaller fraction of the overall food service industry, various forces are at work … [Read more...] about Are Unions the Newest Item on the Menu?
