Labor interns network for the future
A new generation of labor activists connected last Thursday as DC labor interns gathered for a social hour. More than 45 interns from various unions and labor-oriented organizations met to bond, make friends, eat pizza, and talk about labor. The interns came from over 15 different organizations and ranged from recent college grads to graduate students, law students, undergraduate students, and even one high schooler. For the young activists, the event – hosted by the IBEW and organized by Metro Washington Council Rutgers intern Mack Miller – was a chance to connect with other young people working in area unions and allied organizations. "It was really cool for me to meet people from around the country doing all types of work related to labor in DC. It's heartening for me to know that there are so many great young people ready to lead the future labor movement." Daniel Zager, of DC Jobs for Justice, said.
