Human Right Number Twenty-Three

Workers’ Rights

Every grown-up has the right to do a job, to a fair wage for their work, and to join a trade union.

Discussion Topics

Research the Memphis Sanitation Strike. Discuss why the Sanitation workers felt the need to protest. (https://youtu.be/j2lPz5GWOy0)

 

Discuss why it is a Human Right to have a job. 

Activities

Come up with a list of basic rights you as a worker would like to have. (Examples: minimum wage, rest breaks, paid holidays, limited overtime, safe working conditions, etc.)

Important Note

Resist the temptation to play all 30 human rights videos at this point. Save those for each meeting that follows. Carry out the activities and let your students’ own visions of the 30 human rights materialize as the lessons unfold, one at a time.
