@solidarea this is actually a huge interest of mine! yes! I’ve been thinking about how to go about building a childcare collective for awhile now.
@solidarea recently I took one of the #IWW led workplace organizing trainings, & when we were talking about inoculation, about answering the fears that people may have around putting themselves at risk to organizing, the concern of parents about having the ability to support their children was a huge thing that came up. no one is going to strike, or anything else related, if they don’t know for sure that if they lose hours, or get fired, that their kids are gonna have food & shelter.
ugh, yes. I've been following the other teacher strikes and hoping that something springs up in Michigan too. It is just as desperate here as elsewhere. I've been working to unionize the charter I work @ for a year + now, but seems like they will probably fire me before we win this fight
