#11 Union Organizing in Houston - Aliss & Paloma

Today is a special episode where we have a group of guests that join us all the way from Houston, Texas!! Aliss and Paloma do some excellent work helping organize unions in Houston. We talk about some of their organizing strategies and the way subcontractors make it difficult to fight for fair wages. They also shed light on injustices faced by labor workers in the workplace.

The lessons here can apply to many different fields so make sure to take notes as our guests help share the truth!
