The crisis of inequality is arguably one of the greatest social and economic issues facing the United States today. In this webcast, representatives of The Worker Institute at Cornell examine the ways in which worker rights and collective representation impact inequality and explore innovative solutions developed by the labor movement to solve this growing crisis. The presenters address the role that industrial and labor relations has historically had in reducing inequality and how changes in the country’s collective bargaining system can be linked to the extreme levels of inequality we see today. They also share new ways in which low-wage workers are organizing to address inequality and look at two specific examples: Caring Across Generations, a campaign that works to expand access to in-home care while creating living wage jobs for care workers; and Fight for 15, a fast food worker-led movement to raise the national minimum wage to $15 an hour. Presenters: Lara Skinner, Associate Director of The Worker Institute at Cornell Shannon Gleeson, Associate Professor of Labor Relations, Law & History Additional perspectives by: Sarita Gupta, Executive Director of Jobs With Justice and the Co-Director of Caring Across Generations Kendall Fells, SEIU National Coordinator and President of Fast Food Forward Lou Jean Fleron, Emeritus Extension Faculty (Cornell ILR) and Director of the High Road program in Buffalo

// LONG - New EV Incentive in CA Could Result in Half-Priced Model 3 - http://www.latimes.com/business/autos/la-fi-ev-rebate-status-20170901-story.html - Proposed Legislation in CA could increase EV rebates to 10K or more - Bill AB-1184 proposed by Assembly Member Ting in Feb of 2017 - Vote scheduled for Sept 15th, 2017 "The bill directs the state Air Resources Board to devise a formula for car rebates. A single rebate amount would be set that would account for the difference in price between a compact electric car and a traditionally powered compact car, according to the bill. Sponsor Phil Ting (D-San Francisco) has suggested a Chevy Bolt EV could be compared against the best-selling compact in California, which right now is the Honda Civic. That could mean a rebate of $8,000 to $10,000 or more. Ting told The Times last week that a lid could be put on the sticker price of a qualifying car, perhaps $50,000.” - LA Times Bill Text (m) Incentives for electric zero-emission vehicles will further the following goals: (1) One million zero-emission vehicles by 2022 and establishing a self-sustaining market, as stated in the Charge Ahead California Initiative (Chapter 8.5 (commencing with Section 44258) of Part 5 of Division 26 of the Health and Safety Code). (2) Governor Brown’s target of 1.5 million zero-emission vehicles by 2025. (3) Governor Brown’s recent public statements to set a further ambitious target of 5 million zero-emission vehicles by 2030, to be on track to achieve an 80 percent reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the state by 2050.

WEAVERVILLE, N.C. -- A Buncombe County mother has filed a federal discrimination complaint against her former employer after she says she was sent home because her pregnancy. Jaimie Cole says the Brian Center in Weaverville took her off the schedule and placed her on medical leave after her pregnancy limited her abilities on the job. Per her doctor's advice, Cole could not life more than 35 pounds during her third trimester to play it safe during a high-risk pregnancy. Her baby, a now 6-month-old boy named Damion, came into this world healthy, but Cole says what she went through at work was not easy. Cole, a certified nursing assistant, said she couldn't afford to be placed on medical leave. "Risk of my house, my car, feeding my kids, stuff like that, even though I could have worked, and they were not letting me," Cole said. Cole's complaint filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission alleges the Brian Center violated the 1978 Pregnancy Discrimination Act that guarantees her the same rights as other workers with short-term disabilities. "It wasn't fair, because I could still do everything a CNA needed to do, except lifting," Cole said. News 13 spoke with American Civil Liberties Union attorney Ariela Migdal at her office in New York. Migdal is handling Cole's case, which she says it's not all that uncommon. "What we hear over and over from people is 'I can't believe this still happening in 2015
