The mission of the Labor 411 Foundation is to ensure that the middle class survives by advocating for good jobs for everyone. They're building an Ethical Consumer Movement that protects good American jobs by:
1. Research - their research team vets employers who run ethical businesses that hire union workers and pay a fair wage. They publish results in a print and online directory (www.labor411.org)
2. Education - They empower people to use their spending power to hold employers accountable. They make information available about the history of unions and the middle class via their Facebook page and other social media, their online and print directories, and workshops and panel discussions.
3. Advocacy - They work with elected officials to alert them of unethical employer practices and advocate for legislation that protects American workers.
You can help! Join the Ethical Consumer Movement! Labor 411 will be at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia next week, recruiting soldiers for the cause. They'll be posting, blogging and tweeting all week. Follow them at #buyblue and #buyblueforamerica. If you'll be there, drop by the booth. They'll be raffling off union made candy and booze! If you have any questions call 818-884-8966 ext 1103 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Check out our website, www.labor411foundation.org!
