Weekend Video: Labor Action! Fifteen Fights in the Battle for a Better World

This feature-length documentary film follows low-wage, mostly immigrant hotel workers in Southern California — members of Unite Here Local 11, the hospitality workers’ union — as they struggle for new contracts with Disney and Hyatt, and as their campaigns intersect with the Occupy Wall Street movement.

The film features interviews with both native-born and immigrant workers, as well as with union officials, labor leaders, academics, and intellectuals, as it pieces together a snapshot of today’s US labor movement.
