No Rest For the Weary Even on Labor Day

May Day, May Day We Has Run Out of Gooshie Fuds

No holiday for you eben on Labor Day

By two_kittehs

Have we turned a corner with regards to labor being valued compared to capital? One major change I see, is that the issues of income inequality and unfair labor practices are being discussed in the media and not shoved under the rug any more.  New York Times recently covered the practice of treating retail workers like widgets by subjecting them to just in time scheduling. Its not just retail workers whose work is not valued same is true in higher education where University Departments run on the labor of post-docs and adjuncts, while paying them a pittance

I am glad that we are discussing these issues, it is but the first step and we still have a long way to go to before we get an actual change in policy.
