Despite an onslaught of attacks on the freedom to organize, including the recent Supreme Court decision in Janus v. AFSCME, working people are joining together on a scale we haven’t seen in years. From teachers marching for raises to young workers signing union cards, a wave of collective action is sweeping across the country and securing a better economic deal for working families.
