Ask An Expert: What does the surge in workers going on strike mean for racial and economic justice?

In 2023, workers across the country—from Hollywood writers to autoworkers, nurses, and Starbucks baristas—went on strike to improve their working conditions. Heidi Shierholz, president of the Economic Policy Institute and former chief economist at the U.S. Department of Labor, discusses what this surge in labor actions means for workers and the fight for racial and economic justice.


The State of Working America Podcast is part of EPI’s effort to raise workers’ voices to ensure they are heard in the economic policy debate. Hosted by Nick Kauzlarich, Media Relations and Digital Director. 

Core topics include workers' rights, inequality, race, gender, labor markets, education and immigration, but we're interested in all things related to social justice.
