This Summer, fast food workers across the country have launched strikes and pushed for unions and better jobs. SEIU has played a large role in this movement, utilizing a "new" or "alternative" labor model, supporting smaller, independent workers' initiatives, organizing symbolic strikes, and pushing for a higher national minimum wage. Locally, workers at Insomnia Cookies recently launched a strike and joined the Industrial Workers of the World.

Care + Struggle Reading Group

Saturday, May 18th
Community Church of Boston
565 Boylston St, Boston, MA

Topic this month: The Politics of Women and Health: how gender inequality serves capital and state control. We'll be reading several articles describing the lack of access to healthcare, mistreatment by medical institutions, and forced treatment (psychiatric and reproductive) that affect women, paying attention to the similar and different forms of oppression experienced by women who are from the dominant culture and those who are from minority communities or developing countries. Drawing upon insights from previous readings, such as Caliban and the Witch, we'll speculate on how such maltreatment benefits capital and the state.

Justice for Johany! Rally and March

Friday, November 16th
12:00 PM
Holyoke Center
1350 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA
Facebook Event

In March and April, long-term Harvard employee Johany Pilar reported being sexually harassed at work. In May she was threatened with "big, big problems," by a manager. In September she was told verbally and in writing she could be fired, the first discipline she received since she started at Harvard in 1998! Shortly after a picket in October, at which two of Johany's co-workers spoke up for her in public, all three were informed they are now considered "essential staff," meaning they have to work during emergencies, like during the recent hurricane, when almost everyone else gets the day off. These workers were never considered "essential" until they helped publicize Johany's treatment. This is another example of the tit-for-tat retaliation which management has sunk to ever since Johany stood up against rape culture in the workplace.
