It's being called the Great Resignation: Reports show that millions of American workers have disappeared from the labor force since the onset of the COVID-19 crisis. A record number of people are quitting their jobs. Restaurants can’t find wait staff, retailers are searching for seasonal sales help, and airlines have canceled flights. At the same time, a wave of workers is unionizing and even going out on strike, and public support for labor unions is at a 55-year high. Have Americans looked at the current economy and decided they want work to be fundamentally different?
Professor Kate Andrias, a scholar on labor law and a commissioner and the rapporteur for the Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States, joins co-hosts Professor Eric Talley and Research Fellow Kate Waldock ’23 to discuss how workers are asserting their rights and the future of work in the post-pandemic era.
