Labor Day is coming up on Monday and though we won’t have our usual line-up of parades and picnics, the labor movement is still planning to represent. And the good news is that most of the action is online, so you can easily participate from the comfort of your own home! See Calendar above for details or click here; here are some highlights:
The AFL-CIO is hosting a Labor Live series focusing on the effects of the pandemic; tonight at 6 they’ll discuss Front-Line Workers and COVID-19; tomorrow at 3, the topic is The Ongoing Economic Fallout of COVID-19 and then Sunday at 6, the focus is Protecting the U.S. Postal Service and Voting By Mail. On Monday, there are two important in-person actions, the Capital Gazette staff Labor Day rally to save local news at 11:45a and the Restaurant & Food Service Workers Unite for Justice Rally at 1p, and/or you can tune in on WPFW 89.3FM, starting at 8am for Union City Radio's “Workers Rising” 4-hour Labor Day Radio Special, followed by Bill Wax spinning labor music from noon to 2, and then a Labor Day Town Hall exploring COVID’s effects on DC-area workers.
