I wanted to know if the power to choose that we see from workers today was permanent. The best person to ask was Evette Avery Herrod, a union activist.
Evette Avery Herrod speaks on
Recently I saw a video that Evette Avery Herrod made at a union rally. I try to keep at least somewhat informed on what the activists closest to the people are doing. Evette is always, as we say in Panama, “en-la-ola.” She is always on the wave that is doing something.
Evette is not only just a union activist for the sake of activism. She lived the unfairness of our employment system fighting the big boys for herself and others, and she developed the hashtag #standwithevette, a call to action.
Evette refreshed us about the differences between Right to Work [for less] states and actual union states. She told us about the mineworkers in Alabama who have been on strike for nine months. She was out there helping with donations and logistics.
We must support unions. They are the backbones for rebuilding the middle-class. Those who are hesitant should note that corporations have their own in the form of the Chamber of Commerce and scores of other organizations supporting the corporatocracy.
