Tomorrow, the White House is holding a summit with leaders in the various movements to improve the lives of working people across the country, with a focus on how to make sure that economic growth is broad-based and that workers share in the benefits they help create with their labor. In recent days, the AFL-CIO Now blog has been highlighting the stories of workers and their struggle to make sure their voices are heard on the job. Workers like Allysha Almada (right), an RN in Pasadena, CA who was fired after organizing workers at Huntington Memorial hospital. Or Lydia Flores, a cashier at union El Super market in Arleta, CA who’s joined with co-workers to fight for a new contract for more than two years in the face of a campaign by the company to undermine the workers' desires for fair working conditions and a voice on the job.
Tomorrow: Dolly Winter and Gawker
