Here’s today's labor history:
On this date in 1987, the newly-formed Jobs With Justice staged its first big support action, backing 3,000 picketing Eastern Airlines mechanics at Miami Airport. Jobs with Justice now has dozens of chapters across the country, including right here in Washington, DC. Find out more at dcjwj.org
Today’s labor quote is from the Jobs with Justice pledge, which says
“I’ll be there to demand jobs with justice” and commits those who take the pledge to be there at least five times over the course of the year.
