The picket by workers fired by Matchbox restaurant is back on for today at 5p. Ana Hernandez, Altagracia Reyes, Alejandro Roman, Lucas Efrain, and Angel Morales were all fired from their jobs at Matchbox for what they say is "retaliation for taking concerted action to protest unfair working conditions." On the eve of May Day and #DConstrike, "it is imperative that we stand together to defend workers," says Hannah Kane, Worker Justice Organizer for Many Languages One Voice. See Calendar at right for details. Sign the petition here.
"Movements grow in desperate times. We are being born."
Mazzocchi, the primary force behind enactment of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (see Labor History, below), was also a founder of the DC Labor FilmFest 17 years ago, which now anchors the annual DC LaborFest. He died in 2002.
