After I had asked Lindsey what types of subjects would be covered, I honestly wondered why I was invited to 9to5’s Regional Leadership Conference.
It’s a story more common than we might think.
Jennette Wilfong, a Missouri 9to5 member, worked in a group home for adults with developmental disabilities. She worked 50-60 hours a week, and was on call 24/7 Monday to Friday, as well as some weekends and holidays.
After years of organizing from 9to5 and other workers groups, the Los Angeles City Council has raised the minimum wage and passed enforcements to protect workers from wage theft. We’re celebrating this major victory and rolling up our sleeves for what’s next!
Your work is too important to leave vulnerable. Your organization can and should armor up to prepare for the storms of opposition attacks.
