The Center for Popular Democracy and United N.Y. organized Workers Rising,
a conference to celebrate and discuss the exciting new formations and activism
of low-wage workers in 2012 to drive that momentum towards more victories in
2013. In 2012, a wave of worker organizing rose across low-wage industries in
NYC and across the nation, propelled by workers’ anger at poverty wages and
intolerable working conditions. Supported by community, faith-based groups,
unions, and elected officials, these workers participated in nationwide protests
at Wal-Mart, led the first coordinated strikes in the history of America’s fast food
industry, unionized at car washes and groceries, and took on major N.Y.C.
retailers efforts to offer only part-time work.
