“As we all know, we are still in the midst of a worldwide pandemic, and all of us have been affected in some way, shape, or form. What I would like to bring to your awareness is unions and their importance during this pandemic. A union is like a mediator between the worker and their employer. For example, many people look for city jobs because they have good benefits because they have great unions; ie M.T.A, Sanitation, FDNY etc. During the pandemic, many workers have been laid off or negatively affected, but unions have been fighting to keep workers protected since it all started. As we know when it comes to upward mobility and generational wealth, minorities rank low in these categories because of the way the systems have been designed to keep us down. However, unions can lift us up. Dr. King marched with sanitation workers in Memphis who were on strike for fair wages and equality. I ask you to keep yourself aware of the injustices that are occurring now, especially when it pertains to unions and minorities.”

As we all know we are still in the midst of a world wide pandemic and many if not all of us has been affected in some way shape or form. What I would like to bring to your awareness is unions, and their importance. A union is basically a mediator between the worker and their employer, why that is importance is because as we know the power of oppression. For example many people look for city jobs because they have good benefits, but also because they have great unions; ie M.T.A, Sanitation, FDNY etc. What I want is to be aware of is that many people are being layed off because of current circumstances and many of them are also considered essential workers. As we know when it comes to upward mobility and generational wealth blacks and minorities always rank low in these categories because of the white public spaces and the white patriarchy. As Dr King did back In Memphis, march with the sanitation worker who were on strike for fair wages and equality I ask you to keep yourself aware for the injustices that are occurring now especially where it pertain to unions and blacks. But let’s defend union because they work hard for the people. Stay safe, Wash your hands, Wear your mask and keep your safe distancing.
