Special Interest: Labor History at Swarthmore College
Over the past few months I have begun to organize and research materials related to labor activism at Swarthmore over the past ten years. I am currently working on a project to document the many initiatives that have come from employees to improve Swarthmore College as a workplace and enlighten the community on the importance of respecting the labor of staff, students and faculty at the College. Some documents are available on the Living Wage and Democracy Campaign website.
