Sarita Gupta on the history of collective bargaining

September 18, 2018  • Economic Opportunities Program

In September 2018, the Economic Opportunities Program hosted “The Justice System and Jobs: How Court Decisions Are Shaping Americans’ Work Lives,” which examined the critical role that courts have in setting the rules for the employer-employee relationship.

In this clip, Sarita Gupta of Jobs with Justice discusses how collective bargaining has historically excluded women and people of color, and the need to acknowledge this as we consider workers’ rights in the 21st century.

“We should also recognize that the history of collective bargaining has actually been one of exclusion in this country.” @saritasgupta @jwjnational
