Labor Secretary: Labor Movement Isn’t Just About Wages Anymore
Posted On: Sep 22, 2022
Sept. 22, 2022 | GEN Z | When the White House met this May with union organizers at Starbucks, Amazon, and other companies, Labor Secretary Marty Walsh expected this group—most of them young and barely earning $15 an hour—to be primarily upset about their pay. To his surprise, “All they talked about was work conditions, the way they’re being treated on the job, shifts,” he said at the Fast Company Innovation Festival on Tuesday. “None of them talked about wages.” That should serve as a warning sign to companies, believes Walsh—the first person to run the Labor Department since the Ford years who was himself a union leader. “I’ve been around labor for a long time. Usually, the first thing you say is ‘I want more wages,'” he said, adding: “The labor movement in the future is gonna look very different than it does today.” Fast Company
