The State of Labor: What Can We Learn from Poultry Industry Organizing During the Pandemic?
In the first episode of our mini-series on the state of labor, Katy Keiffer, host of What Doesn't Kill You, talks to Magaly Licolli. Magaly is the Co-Founder and Director of Venceremos, an organization that advocates for poultry workers' rights in Arkansas, the home of Tyson Foods. On this episode, Katy and Magaly discuss the idea of worker-driven social responsibility, in addition to fighting for poultry employees to get Covid-19 protections at the workplace and the taboo of talking about working conditions.
