The Theology of Work and the Dignity of Workers

The Intersection of Labor/Civil/Human Rights

Queens, NY
Labor, Employment and Benefits Partner Frederick Braid will speak at a St. John's University School of Law program sponsored by the Center for Labor and Employment Law titled The Theology of Work and the Dignity of Workers on "The Intersection of Labor/Civil/Human Rights."

The conference will explore the dignity of workers in the modern workplace, at a time when wage and hour claims proliferate; employee advocates claim the minimum wage is insufficient while at the same time employers and the jobs they provide face increasing competition globally from countries where employees may earn less in a week or a month than an American worker earns in a day; and yet even those fortunate enough to have a job might actually be working two or three jobs to make ends meet. Mr. Braid will  be chairing a panel that will address the intersection of labor relations, civil rights and human rights.
