When Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers declared 2024 “The Year of the Worker” he outlined ambitious plans for child care, paid family leave and worker education. But what about immigration reform or organizing non-union workers? Robert Christl, program director for Worker Justice Wisconsin, came on the 8 O’Clock Buzz to talk about his organization’s fight for health, dignity and organizational power for all workers. Worker Justice Wisconsin and its predecessors, the Interfaith Coalition for Worker Justice and the Workers Rights Center, have focused on these issues since 1997.
