The Wellstone Democratic Renewal Club welcomes a panel low-wage workers from the service and big-box retail industries who will speak on their struggles and successes in organizing and fighting back while reviving the union movement. We will hear from fast food workers, Walmart workers, newly unionized hotel and restaurant workers.

The Club also welcomes two local expert activists in this field as they share their vision and insights on the state of the movement here in the Bay Area:

  • Andrew Dadko of the East Bay Alliance for a Sustainable Economy
  • Hon. Dr. Nicky Gonzales Yuen, a community college professor and a leader in the East Bay’s and San Jose’s minimum wage campaigns.
