This Labor Day weekend one of the most prominent labor unions is partnering with Interfaith Worker Justice to sponsor events focused on faith and labor. A blog post on the AFL-CIO website announced that roughly 100 “Labor in the Pulpits” services were planned for Chicago, Ill., and about 50 in Baltimore, Md.
According to that post, “Labor Day weekend provides a unique opportunity for faith communities, workers, worker advocates and the labor movement to rediscover their common bonds: social justice, equality, the dignity and respect of all persons, economic justice and fair treatment in the workplace.”
Just in case objective journalism wasn’t dead enough, the Newspaper Guild is making sure of it. The Guild’s San Francisco-area chapter’s latest intern program aims to teach college students “social justice” in journalism.
