Career Calling

Good Work is Part of the Dream

Today is the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington.  While everyone correctly remembers Martin Luther King’s role as a civil rights champion, we should not forget his commitment to workplace justice.  King often walked with striking workers.  He preached the need for good jobs and good wages.  Surely his voice would ring out today as an advocate for those low wages workers who are asking America to wake up.  Tomorrow will be a day of strikes and direct action in the fast food industry.  If Dr. King were alive, he would be standing with our brothers and sisters who labor at minimum wage jobs with no benefits.  He knew that all Americans deserve equal opportunity – and a living wage.
