Throughout history, the labor movement has been a driving force in advocating for better working conditions, fair wages and improved worker rights. Despite its origins in the late 19th century, the relevance of Labor Day remains important in the 21st century.
Labor Day is an opportunity for employers and employees to reflect on the significance of labor rights and to engage in meaningful conversations about improvements that can be made.
This Meeting in a Box explores the struggles facing low-wage workers and activists that have helped shape the labor movement. It also includes an expansive timeline of key labor events and facts and figures from Fair360’s Top 50 Companies for Diversity.
