A very interesting interview
Worth reading the interview of Ai-jen Poo who has been organizing domestic workers. Her assessment: 'as we look around, more and more of the American workforce is dealing with some of the very same dynamics: isolation, part-time and contingent work, vulnerability and job insecurity. And so if we can figure out the models that work for domestic workers, we can contribute that to a broader conversation about reinventing the labor movement for the 21st century... We can also tell the story of the kind of economy that we need: more workplace flexibility, paid leave and universal childcare.
