Major Corporations Could Take Power Back From Black Workers If This Happens

Working conditions during the pandemic inspired many workers to collectively organize. Many of these unionization efforts were successful, especially at mega corporations like Amazon, Starbucks, and Apple.

The current condition of the economy opened the door for Black workers to organize strategically and win. The  job market has worked in favor of employees recently  because there are more jobs than there are workers.

However, a recession could shift the balance of power back in the employer's favor.

A recession period will stunt the recent job growth in America which may significantly decrease job opportunities. Employers will have power over workers again and people will be less willing to organize for fear of losing their jobs.

Black workers will suffer the most.

Recessions limit our power, but it's up to us to fight back regardless. Continue to organize and build community with other Black workers and demand better for us all.
