SOME THOUGHTS ON POSSIBLE CONTENT FOR                                      2/12/12

AN OCCUPY THE WORKPLACE WEBSITE  

 

• explanation of the current crisis and its effect on workers

(maybe a sort of condensed version A Brief History of Neoliberalism or a video or slideshow covering the same ground)

 

• links to other pertinent videos

 

• suggested reading: magazine articles and books such as The Disposable American: Layoffs and their Consequences by Louis Uchitelle and Winner-Take-All Politics: How Washington Made the Rich Richer and Turned Its Back on the Middle Class by Jacob S. Hacker and Paul Pierson (the title’s emphasis on the middle class is unfortunate, because their analysis of how the federal government acted to increase inequality is pertinent to the entire 99%–middle class, working-class and poor)

 

•links to OWS and activist organizations of interest to workers

 

• links to unions

 

•links to websites offering news and practical advice to workers, such as Workplace Fairness

 

•listings of upcoming events of interest to workers

 

• maybe an Occupy the Workplace blog
