“Six Hour Day For Eight Hours Pay-The Shorter Work Day/Week” with John Proctor

When: Sunday, May 5, 2019, 11:00 am to 1:30 pm
Where: Community Church of Boston • 565 Boylston Street, 2nd floor • Boston
Learn what we can do to reduce the forty-hour work week - There is a necessity for a shorter workday (six hours instead of eight). This “New Deal” is a demand to push a 30 Hour week to the Federal Government who would subsidize employment if market forces cannot. By self-initiating a mass movement towards achieving this goal, it will relieve overworked Americans who have no affiliation with identity politics to afford a better life at home and in their community.
 
• John Proctor has been a lifelong labor activist, a Secretary-Treasurer of Local 57 International Chemical Workers Union, steward and 25 year member of Local 369 Utility Workers of America and Branch Secretary of the Boston Branch IWW. He was a Second Class Steam Engineer (non-degree) at Boston Edison having worked his way up from a Stationary Fireman.
