O que eu aprenderei?

The Labor Studies Program explains the issues that shape our world: globalization, social and economic equality, power and resistance. We explore how the workplace has changed, why workers organize, and what ordinary people can do about social injustice. We ground theory in practice, with strategies for exercising your rights at work, improving your working conditions, and getting the respect to which all are entitled. Labor Studies provides essential tools and basic knowledge for teachers, union activists, managers, worker advocates, human resource managers, and all working people.
