“We’re Facing Extinction” – Why UC Workers Are Striking | Capital & Main

UC workers are getting ready to strike tomorrow. This fight is largely about survival and the threat of outsourcing. UC currently contracts out 7,000 jobs.
We are proud to stand with UC workers on all campuses fighting for the future of the middle class.

Critics of outsourcing say the rush to replace the wages and benefits of public employees with lower-paying, private-sector jobs has taken its toll on America's middle class.

Southwest Airlines had $2.5 billion in profits due in no small part to airport workers who carry baggage, assist disabled passengers and secure the airport. Yet, they show no “LUV” for airport workers when they use irresponsible contractors who leave many workers with inadequate healthcare and grueling workloads that make our airports less safe for passengers, our community and working people.

Battles erupt over warehouse jobs as the Legislature moves to curb subsidies

San Bernardino residents fight for good jobs and the health of their community!

"Hundreds of residents packed a church hall in San Bernardino a few weeks ago to hear community leaders rail against a huge new logistics center planned for the town’s airport.

The $200-million air cargo facility, the size of 11 football fields, could eventually generate some 3,800 jobs, garnering $6.5 million a year in revenue for the publicly owned airport on the site of the long-shuttered Norton Air Force base. But what kind of jobs, residents wanted to know: Low-paid part-time jobs with no benefits? Jobs likely to be replaced by robots?"

Warehouse development in California's Inland Empire is subsidized with millions in tax breaks. Critics say companies gain from bidding wars and secrecy.

The Good Fight: Organized Labor Leads the Charge at the Ballot Box

“Union members and those not yet organized, immigrants and U.S.-born, black and white and Asian and Latino, the LGBT community, and any American with a sense of fair play and justice looked at each other and said ‘there’s more of us than there are of them,’” said LA County Fed President Rusty Hicks. “And the new Congress will reflect that.”

Here's What 5 Teachers in Different States Are Fighting for a Year After Walkouts and Protests

What is broken in a society that undervalues one of its most fundamentally important professions? Our future is literally at stake. But besides the horrible treatment that led to this past year's wave teacher strikes, the solidarity of teachers across the country has been truly inspiring.

Uber and Lyft drivers are planning a massive strike this week over work conditions and pay rates

"I'm striking for my kid's future. I have a 5-year-old son, and I drive for Uber to support him. But it's becoming harder and harder," Lama said, adding: "Uber executives are getting rich off of our work; they should treat us with respect. We are striking to send a message that drivers will keep rising up." #UberStrike #LyftStrike #solidarity

Drivers for the ride-hailing companies Uber and Lyft are planning strikes this week in several cities amid controversy about their IPOs.

A big thanks to everyone that came out for the #LAPeoplesPower march. LA showed up in force and filled the streets! As we close the week, here is a look at May Day around the world. In comparison, we kept things mellow...

Labor Day, or May Day, is observed all over the world on the first day of May to celebrate the achievements of workers and fight for laborers' rights.

California janitors may get labor law protections in wake of federal court decision

“Workers pay thousands of dollars for a ‘franchise’, when what they are really buying is the right to clean office buildings for these companies.”
There are too many examples of how companies abuse the franchise model to count, but this has got to be one of the worst.

In a decision opening yet another front in the battle over how to classify workers, a federal appeals court Thursday ruled that an international franchisor could be forced to treat its California janitors as employees rather than independent contractors.

Democrats’ New Labor Bill May Test White House Hopefuls

Today, House and Senate Dems introduced the PRO Act, a sweeping labor reform bill. The bill has a lot in it, banning right-to-work laws, forced arbitration, and captive audience meetings. In many ways, it is the rebirth of the Employee Free Choice Act, but with sharper teeth.

Congressional Democrats are proposing a far-reaching bill that would bolster workers’ organizing rights, prohibit the misclassification of workers as independent contractors, and walk back U.S. Supreme Court decisions on employee arbitration and union fee collection.

The Millennialization of American Labor

"In the last year... American workers have loudly and clearly said, “Enough!” Teachers, musicians, actors, hotel workers, grocery store employees, and many others have gone on strike—the most workers to have walked off the job than in any year since 1986. Crucially, these strikers won most of their key demands."
Every American worker has a reason to celebrate May Day. Whether it's fighting for basic rights like our brothers and sisters did in Haymarket Square, or enjoying higher wages due to unions in the same industry, when labor wins, inequality shrinks.

A generation of young workers is rebuilding a battered union movement.

Gig Workers Are Contractors, DOL Says in Latest Letter (1)

Trump's Department of Labor is siding with business owners who won't take responsibility for the employees that make them rich by pushing to deny basic rights to workers classified as 'independent contractors'. It does not matter if the boss is a contractor, or an app, there is no excuse to deny workers a safe workplace, fair pay, workers comp, unemployment benefits, or the right to organize.

Workers for an unnamed company operating in the “sharing” economy can’t be considered “employees” under the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Labor Department found in its latest opinion letter, issued April 29.

California employers added jobs in March, with construction in the lead

With construction jobs in high demand, we are proud to work with our partners to run the Second Chance program that trains formerly incarcerated people for jobs in the Building Trades.

California added jobs at a modest rate in March, reflecting an economy that is close to full employment after 108 months of job expansion, one of the longest runs since World War II.

After years of alleged wage theft, a Culver City carwash is ordered to pay $2.4 million

“Nissani and Shamshoni are jointly liable, along with the carwash company, to pay more than $1.8 million in back wages and $516,000 in civil penalties, according to the labor commissioner. Investigators also ordered them to pay back $19,000 that was deducted from workers’ paychecks for towels used at the carwash.”

https://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-car-wash-wage-theft-20190417-story.html

In the largest wage-theft case ever brought by California against a car wash company, auto dealership mogul Hooman Nissani and his Playa Vista Car Wash are accused of cheating workers.

Would you grocery shop by talking to a smart assistant?

With all the recent attention on efforts to replace union jobs at the Port of LA with automation, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Walmart and Amazon are eager to join the race to the bottom. But as this article points out, "Not even 1 percent of Americans said they would rather shop on a smart speaker."

It’s Walmart and Google vs. Amazon and Whole Foods for the future of voice shopping.
