Amy Laura Hall, “Providing our daily bread, for real bodies,” Durham Herald Sun

“Workers across North Carolina are organizing for a large event “for 15” on April 15. The gathering will include women who deliver mail, teenage boys who grill hamburgers, young women who grade papers and men who change Depends undergarments. What do we have in common? We work caring for people’s bodies, souls and minds, and we take our jobs seriously. We take our jobs so seriously that we expect to be treated with dignity at work. We expect to be treated as people, not as tools, because our work demands that we daily treat other human beings with patience.”

In a recent OpEd in the Durham Herald Sun, Amy Laura Hall writes about workers’s rights and dignity in the workplace. On April 15, workers and advocates around the country will rally for better wages and working conditions. Hall is a member of SNCF and an associate professor of Christian ethics at Duke University.
