Blog of the Week

The Longest Strike in America Needs a Political Savior

The longest ongoing strike in America today is happening in the media capital of the world. It involves the people who install and repair the cables that bring the news to many of the most influential people in America. But after three long years, the Spectrum workers of New York City are beginning to feel as though everyone has forgotten about them.

Thought for the Week

"In the aftermath of abuse, survivors immediately need physical safety and financial independence from their abusers... Understandably, it becomes incredibly difficult for survivors to secure and retain work after experiencing trauma...Many of the reasons that survivors have for taking time away from work aren’t covered. They are limited to using unpaid leave for medical treatment, to care for their own serious illness, or to care for a sick or injured family member, but cannot use it to seek legal or law enforcement protection from their abuser, to obtain assistance from a victim services provider, or to relocate or take steps to secure their existing home. "

–Alejandra Y. Castillo; CEO of YWCA USA
