Today in Labor History

Nov. 22, 1963
President John F. Kennedy is assassinated. Generally considered a friend of labor, Kennedy a year earlier had issued Executive Order 10988, which authorized unionization and a limited form of collective bargaining rights for most federal workers (excluding the Department of Defense). Many states followed the example set by Kennedy.

Higher Wages Fuel Income Equality
Posted On: Jul 11, 2017
July 11, 2017 | WAGES | Continued inaction on an increase of the minimum wage at the federal level hasn’t stopped states and localities from moving on the issue. And last weekend, several officially enacted a higher pay floor that continues a trend across the nation. Several of the wage hikes were associated with the phasing in of an eventual $15 minimum wage. In San Francisco and Los Angeles, for example, hourly pay minimums rose to $14 and $12 respectively as part of the gradual rise toward the $15 level, the living wage thresholds that the Teamsters, other unions and worker advocates have been fighting for since 2012. Sadly, some states are still taking a step back… teamster.org  Related: State lawmakers are taking away raises, lowering the minimum wage.
