More than a century ago, a fire in a garment factory in New York City galvanized the labor union movement. The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory employed some 500 women, many of them immigrants and some as young as 15, who worked 13-hour shifts with just 30 minutes for lunch, for $6 a week.
TEAMING UP WITH PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE IN THEIR CAUSE
I am passionate about making my community a better place to live and work. When I meet others who share in that mentality, I am always eager to join forces. If you have thoughts on how to improve Kentucky’s economic empowerment, race relations, or overall work environment, I encourage you to give me a call so that we can bounce ideas off one another.
DETERMINING THE BEST WAY TO PROCEED
Making changes within your community is perfectly possible when you work with others who share your vision. Depending on what you’re trying to accomplish, your project may call for coordinating a community event, hosting a fundraiser, filing a lawsuit, or a number of other steps. Fortunately, I am experienced in each of these respects and am always open to hearing new ideas, as well.
