United Steel Workers Host Teach-In

The United Steelworkers are hosting an all-day teach-in on Human Rights, Global Justice and the G-20 on Wednesday.

About a hundred people attended the teach-in on Wednesday. United Steelworkers President spoke to the group about the challenges workers are currently facing. He says we've hit an unemployment rate of nearly eighteen percent if you count the people who have given up looking for work.

United Steelworkers Director of Education Lisa Jordan said they regularly hold educational sessions but this one is specifically being held because of the G20 Summit.

Sessions included anti-sweatshop legislation and race, gender and globalization.
