The website coworker.org is doing something very special and we should boost them.
The website http://coworker.org
is a petition site, similar to some of the big ones online but it's special, because the petitions are about addressing workplace issues.
It's not about fundraising for a political campaign, or about buying an ad in the Congressional Quarterly or Roll Call or about being lobbyists.
Coworker helps people build community support to address problems in the workplace. This is a merger of "clicktivism" with direct action. It's chips away at the wall between "media" and "life".
The following are some coworker.org petitions relevant to people in Los Angeles:
Wells Fargo: End the Obsession with Sales Goals http://www.coworker.org/petitions/wells-fargo-end-the-obsession-with-sales-goals
Forever 21: We Demand Full-Time Opportunities (forever 21 is HQd in LA) http://www.coworker.org/petitions/forever-21-don-t-punish-employees-to-avoid-health-care-requirements
Walmart: Stop Cutting Our Hours http://www.coworker.org/petitions/walmart-stop-cutting-our-hours
Walmart: Stop Forcing Employees to Work in the Dark http://www.coworker.org/petitions/walmart-stop-forcing-employees-to-work-in-the-dark
I can't do my job through a video screen (Bank of America replacing live tellers with video-based tellers) http://www.coworker.org/petitions/no-more-jobs-lost
