for a future organizing blog

Interesting note on Portside about non-union workers’ groups organizing around non-workplace economic issues:

The new group will not seek to negotiate contracts as unions do, but its leaders say it will most likely push for a higher minimum wage and for many other issues fast-food workers support, including affordable housing, immigration reform, better police-community relations and improvements to New York’s subway system.

NOTE: not sure that I want to intermingle organizing ideas here, but also know I don’t need to start a new blog (at least today), so for now I’ll just add an Organizing tag that I’ll migrate later.
