Labor Café

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

The Labor Café convenes the Notre Dame community for 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 entertained.

The Labor Café Goes Virtual in the Fall 2020 Semester! Join us via Zoom on the first Friday of each month.

Next up:

Friday, November 6, 2020, 5:00–6:00 p.m.

Facilitators: Diana Hess, St. Joseph County Councilwoman & Robert Caruso (ND '22), Higgins Labor Program Student Assistant
