KC Labor
For Class and Climate Justice

Founded March, 2000. An unofficial, not-for-profit site, based in Kansas City, created and maintained by volunteer labor.

Labor Unions

This site is pro-union. Not only do unionized workers earn more money than their unorganized counterparts in any given trade or industry; they also have more job security, and control over their working conditions.  For information about U.S. labor laws see our Know Your Rights.
