Here's a worthwhile project from the AFL-CIO -- it's called "Ask a Lawyer."
Can my boss really do that? How many of us find ourselves asking that very question on a weekly, if not daily basis? Well now we just may get the answers we seek. Because Working America, the 1.6 million-member community affiliate of the AFL-CIO, which provides a voice for those of us denied the right to union membership on the job, has started its “Ask a Lawyer” program.
First of all, who benefits from Working America? Well, only those of us who don’t have stock options in Halliburton or stay up nights uncontrollably excited about the next day’s bank merger. The silenced majority, if you will.
It's never been easier for workers to learn about their rights. Good for the AFL-CIO.
