Union-busting at the Fund for Public Interest, and the inner workings of the Red & Black Cafe collective
Kris Humbird and his coworkers at the Fund for the Public Interest call center -- which raises funds for OSPIRG and Environment Oregon -- formed a union with CWA Local 7901 this past October. Kris joined us in studio to talk about the job he loves, the trouble with fundraising quotas, and the ugly union-busting side of these beloved progressive organizations.
If Kris and his coworkers are taking one step towards a voice in their workplace, John Langley and his coworkers at the Red and Black Cafe have taken it a step farther: They own and run the restaurant themselves, as a worker-owned cooperative. John joined us by phone to talk about life without a boss.
