The occasions will happen on the Working Households Occasion’s Instagram page. The programming begins tomorrow at 3 p.m. Jap with a dialog between Billy Bragg and Sara Steffens, the Secretary-Treasurer of the Communications Employees of America.

The complete schedule for the talks and performances can be shared through Instagram in coming days.
The PRO Act, for which President Joe Biden voiced help earlier this week, would increase declining union membership in the US and enhance worker protections from employer interference in collective bargaining.
