Workonomics: The Most Important Upworthy Series You're Probably Not Reading Yet (But You Should)

June 26, 2013

Did you know 75% of minimum wage earners are adults? That there's a website that will literally help you fix your job? On some farms in New York, 15 to 16 workers are forced to live together in tiny trailers? On average taxpayers subsidize Walmart $6,000 per employee because of poverty wages?

These stories appear in the Upworthy series, Workonomics, brought to you by the AFL-CIO. The series is designed to lift up shareable content about labor unions, America's middle class and the need for collective action to make real change around wages, paid sick days, economic inequality and workers' rights.
