Last night Belabored hosted a discussion on the so-called Great Resignation, Striketober, and other developments in the labor movement in the pandemic era. We were joined by two friends of the podcast: Rebecca Kolins Givan, an associate professor of Labor Studies and Employment Relations in the School of Management and Labor Relations at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, and an expert on employment relations in health care and education, comparative welfare states and labor studies; and C.M. Lewis, writer and editor of the labor publication Strikewave and a union staffer in Central Pennsylvania.
