An App That Makes Supporting Pro-Union Goods and Services Easier

The internet has made it easier than ever to find goods and services. But this unprecedented access to options also means that we as consumers must do more research if we want to buy or use services that are ethical.  

An important way in which we could all become more ethical consumers is buying union-made products and using pro-union services. The thing is it’s not always clear what goods or services support good-paying, union jobs.

Finding ways to support good jobs has now become much easier with Labor 411’s new app.

For over a decade, Labor 411 has been “supporting businesses that treat their employees well with fair pay, good benefits and safe working conditions” by highlighting them in their online and print directories. With these valuable resources, Labor 411 connects ethical businesses with conscious consumers. The app now makes their renowned online directories easily accessible in the palm of your hand.

In a statement announcing the app, Labor 411 founder and President Cherri Senders said:

“Labor 411 has always maintained that making smart, ethical choices every time you open your wallet is easy. The 411 App makes the process that much easier.”

With over 11,000 listings, Labor 411 points you in the right direction for everything from restaurants and hotels to gifts and clothes. Although their app focuses on the nation’s largest consumer markets, you can find plenty of businesses that offer good and services nationally.

Labor 411 partners with labor councils in Los Angeles (where it’s based), San Francisco, Washington DC, Philadelphia and New York City to ensure that listings are accurate and verified. 

Visit Labor 411’s website for more information on its new app, now available for Apple and Android. Download it today and make sure to share it with your friends and family!

Union Matters

He Gets the Bucks, We Get All the Deadly Bangs

National Rifle Association chief Wayne LaPierre has had better weeks. First came the horrific early August slaughters in California, Texas, and Ohio that left dozens dead, murders that elevated public pressure on the NRA’s hardline against even the mildest of moves against gun violence. Then came revelations that LaPierre — whose labors on behalf of the nonprofit NRA have made him a millionaire many times over — last year planned to have his gun lobby group bankroll a 10,000-square-foot luxury manse near Dallas for his personal use. In response, LaPierre had his flacks charge that the NRA’s former ad agency had done the scheming to buy the mansion. The ad agency called that assertion “patently false” and related that LaPierre had sought the agency’s involvement in the scheme, a request the agency rejected. The mansion scandal, notes the Washington Post, comes as the NRA is already “contending with the fallout from allegations of lavish spending by top executives.”
