Labor Movie Night

July 27, 2019 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Short URL: https://siliconvalleydsa.org/?p=3392

The decline of unions and labor activism means many of our images and attitudes are shaped through its depiction in media. We will be screening three episodes of network TV to compare and discuss!

 

Superstore – Labor

Cheyenne is having her baby in the store but won’t stop working because Cloud9 doesn’t offer paid maternity leave. To help her, Jonah proposes a walkout.

 

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine – Bar Association

Unfair working conditions and pay cuts cause Rom to organize a union of the employees of Quark’s Bar. Meanwhile, Worf still finds it hard to settle on the station.

 

The Simpsons – Last Exit to Springfield

“Last Exit to Springfield” is the seventeenth episode of The Simpsons’ fourth season. It originally aired on the Fox network in the United States on March 11, 1993. The plot revolves around Homer Simpson becoming president of the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant’s trade union and leading the workers of the plant in a strike in order to get their dental plan back.
