ACORN workers in Philidelphia have been fighting for respect from their employer for quite a while now. ACORN locals all over the country have been responding -- overwhelmingly positively -- to the faxes, leafletting, and newsletters that members of the Industrial Workers of the World have been distributing to workers.
Supposedly a nonprofit organization dedicated to grassroots organizing, ACORN has local chapters around the USA. ACORN frequently stands in solidarity with unions -- as long as it's not their own workers who are organized. The progressive talk of the organization is part of what makes their union-busting tactics so appalling.
ACORN workers face employment conditions unheard of in the "for-profit" world. Ranging from unpaid overtime to late or nonexistent paychecks, it's no wonder workplace inequities inspired the workers to unionize.
An injury to one is an injury to all!
