WILL THE NLRB LET GRADUATE STUDENT WORKERS DOWN AGAIN?


At In These Times, I ask whether the NLRB will go into paralysis next week without restoring graduate student workers’ rights:

Dacia Mitchell has taught dozens of students. This year, she stopped teaching because the money she was paid for it was less than the cost of childcare for her two year-old daughter. She worries about how class size and teacher workload affect the quality of teaching at New York University, where she works. So she and her co-workers, who once had union recognition, are fighting to win it back. But under current law, they have no right to recognition, because they’re graduate students.

Here’s the rest.
