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.
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.
