Dignity of work is achieved when hard work pays off for everyone, no matter who you are or what kind of work you do. If you would like to take some time to learn more about what that means, here’s a good resource: https://t.co/k6EUP83Uoa

Actually the dignity of work is about busting myths like this one. Truth is people are working harder and producing more—but wages haven’t kept up. Their hard work is making corporations rich. Workers have earned a raise & dignity of work is achieved by making sure they get it. https://t.co/hfcNsdLAV2
