Bridging the Pay and Protections Gap for Essential Workers

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has pulled the curtain back on the stark reality of our economy; the most essential workers, needed to keep the country afloat, are often paid the least and given the least protections to stay safe as the virus spreads.

On this quick podcast, Voice of B2B Daniel Litwin sat down with professor of law at Berkeley Law, Catherine Fisk, an experienced advocate for workers rights, focusing on labor law reform. Catherine shared her insights on…

  • Which companies have rolled out appropriate protections for their workforce
  • What the legal structures in place are to force employers to provide these protections
  • What the cultural & economic ramifications are of the socioeconomic class divide for essential workers
  • What the short and long term projects are to protect and more properly value essential workers
