What We’re Doing
Ethical Camping Essentials
Ah, the great outdoors. The fresh air, the sounds of nature, the s’mores! That’s right. When you’re planning an outdoor vacation during the final weeks of summer, you’ll need a bunch of supplies, both fun and practical. Whether you’re protecting against the elements or putting together a decadent fireside treat, Labor 411 reminds you to shop for ethical American-made brands manufactured by companies that treat their workers fairly. Enjoy the outdoors, and together we’ll camp our way to a stronger America.
18 Regional Hot Dog Toppings for Your Union-Made Cookout
When you fire up the grill, there’s a good chance your hot dog was made by a UFCW member. Oscar Meyer, Boars Head, Ball Park, Hebrew National and Nathan’s hot dogs are all made by hard working men and women in union-represented processing facilities across America. While the hot dog might be quintessentially American, what you choose to put on your dog can say a lot about where you live.
Stay Cool with These Ethical Summer Essentials
Summer’s officially here and it’s time to tame those rays. Whether you’re embracing the blaze on a summer hike, beating the heat by the pool or enjoying that good old fun in the sun somewhere else, Labor 411 has a list of essentials for all your summer adventures. And when you choose one or more items from the list below, you will be supporting ethical companies that treat their employees well and give them good pay and benefits.
Baseball Food That’s Always a Hit
A ball game just isn’t a ball game without the hot dogs, the salty snacks, the sodas and the beer. To best enjoy these goodies, we recommend ethical brands made by companies who treat their employees fairly. If you’re headed to the stadium, you can bring your own snacks (but don’t try this with the beer!) If you’re watching at home, consult the list of products below and make it an ethical baseball feast. Let’s all support good middle class jobs as we slug, throw and pitch our way to a stronger America.
