30 0ctober 2008 – Worker resistance in low wage service jobs Unions typically implemented because of a fight many jobs shipped outside of original establishments manufacturing jobs are unionized and were “good jobs” until they went overseas But they weren’t always “good jobs” manufacturers and politicians worked hard in their own interest to squelch unionization over time unionization is responsible for the upgrade in manufacturing jobs Is unionization the answer to low wage workers? Unionization in Retail – can it come about with grass roots resistance? Examples of “shop floor” resistance evading the customer evading the managerial requests (like the black guy sent to the register) there is a lot of discontent in these jobs with the high turnover – you can see people are not putting up with this there is a great deal of resistance and most people are not happy with their jobs Why do some stay in these “bad jobs”? The family – the social network.
