November Friday Forum – The Usefulness of Unions

Missouri workers can thank labor unions for the 5-day, 40-hour work week, unemployment benefits, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and workers compensation laws. Thanks to the efforts of unions, workers have achieved higher wages, more reasonable hours, and safer working conditions, but their work is not over. Join us and Andrew Hutchinson of Laborers Local 955 to hear how unions continue to support Missouri workers and what we’re still fighting for.

Empower Missouri’s Friday Forums are our monthly online educational offerings for Missourians to build knowledge on poverty-related policy issues and skill in legislative and grassroots advocacy.
