Carbon Labor Chapter to meet September 16
The Carbon County Labor Chapter will meet at 7 p.m. on Monday Sept. 16.
The meeting will take place at the Democratic Information Center at 110 S. 1st St. in Lehighton (across from the senior high-rise in downtown Lehighton).
The program will focus on three issues:
• The recent nationwide protests by "fast food workers" who are pressing for a living wage of $15 per hour.
• The Chapter will discuss a recent effort to unionize workers.
• The Chapter's project to help food banks within the county.
