YOUNG WORKERS HAVE DISCOVERED AN OLD TRUTH: We are stronger than we know when we stand together.
Baristas are discovering that. They are starting to “wake up and smell the coffee.” They are not alone.
Young workers are unionizing everywhere, from coffee shops to legal clinics.
Interns, many unpaid, are standing up for their rights. Unions are standing with them.
Young workers everywhere are no longer willing to be treated like children—condemned to depend on the goodwill of adults for decent treatment.
They are more and more standing together and unions are standing with them—to help them get the respect and fair treatment all workers want and deserve.
We are stronger than we know. Unions remind us of that every day.
