Top Service Employees Officer Calls for New-Style Labor System

Union decline can be linked to an outdated U.S. labor system model. “A new-style labor system” has been suggested by a top Service Employees officer.

This new system guarantees basic working conditions for tens of thousands of workers and would allow management to bargain with workers when a conflict arises.

SEIU Local 775 President David Rolf worked on the Fight for 15 campaign that directly affected Sea-Tac’s decision to raise the minimum wage. This raise aided grocery store clerks, fast food workers and airport employees.

Rolf mentioned that a similar practice was used in Germany “and Germany now has the largest middle class in the world.”
