The most exciting labor organizing stories this year have come out of emerging organizing efforts like the Amazon Labor Union, Trader Joe’s United and Home Depot Workers United. Worker organizers are taking on some of the largest corporations in the country and winning historic victories for working people. What strategies have led to success in these emerging organizing campaigns? What do these efforts have in common, and how have they taken advantage of new and existing technologies to build worker power?

Hi! I’m Vince, the lead organizer from Home Depot store #4112, and President of Home Depot Workers United. I also do interviews for The Real News Network. People are my passion, and the relationships I have built with various working people are what motivate me to fight for a better economy that is fair to the millions of workers who prop it up, but are regularly taken for granted and forgotten.
