The Labor Café

Labor Curious? Visit the Labor Café, where ND talks work!

The Labor Café convenes the Notre Dame community for coffee and casual conversation on contemporary questions about work, workers, and workplaces. What rights and protections should those who work for others have? What's the proper role for government in the economy? How should we address enduring problems of inequality, poverty, and lack of opportunity? And what does Catholic Social Teaching have to say about these labor questions? 

Participants choose the concrete topics, all people are welcome, and all opinions are tolerated. We generally meet on select Friday afternoons from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the Geddes Hall Coffee House.


The Higgins Labor Café has wrapped up for this academic year, but check back on this page in late summer for the latest on our conversation topics and articles.
