WHY THIS ELECTION MATTERS

ISSUES: Unemployment Insurance

At-Large DC Council member [link removed] Elissa Silverman played a pivotal role in protecting unemployed workers during the pandemic. Silverman led the passage of emergency pandemic legislation to extend unemployment benefits for workers who couldn't find jobs, giving families seven additional weeks of protection when they needed it most. She's also worked to highlight and help resolve ongoing unemployment insurance issues, including holding the administration accountable for modernizing the UI system, which the pandemic showed is in desperate need of reform. Here's more on what Silverman's [link removed] done on UI recently, her [link removed] guide to Unemployment Insurance for DC workers, and [link removed] labor's flyer for Elissa Silverman.

Today's Labor History
This week's Labor History Today podcast: [link removed] Socialist fairy tales. Last week's show: [link removed] Pueblo steelworkers' historic strike.


2,100 supermarket janitors in California, mostly from Mexico, win a $22.4 million settlement over unpaid overtime. Many said they worked 70 or more hours a week, often seven nights a week from 10 p.m. to 9 a.m. Cleaner Jesus Lopez told the New York Times he only had three days off in five years - 2004

The UAW ends a three-week strike against Ford Motor Co. when the company agrees to a contract that includes more vacation days and better retirement and unemployment benefits - 1976

A strike by set decorators turns into a bloody riot at the gates of Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, Calif. (photo below) when scabs try to cross the picket line. The incident is still identified as "Hollywood Black Friday" and "The Battle of Burbank" - 1945
