Join Ash Center Democracy Fellows Johnnie Lotesta and Gali Racabi for the fourth and final session of their spring semester 2020 study group on the struggles and successes of the U.S. labor movement. As the dust settles from an intense Democratic primary battle between Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, and as COVID-19 wreaks havoc on the U.S. economy, we will explore proposals and prospects for the future of labor law and worker protections in the United States. In this session we will unpack what the current health crisis and political moment teach us about what we can - and ought - to aspire to in America’s future labor policy.
Guest speakers include Sharon Block, Executive Director, Labor and Worklife Program, Harvard Law School, and David Weil, Dean and Professor of the Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University.
