Holiday Season is here. Struggling for some gifts that are meaningful, while produced responsibly? We'll be posting a new union-made gift idea each day for the next two weeks.
Books: Joelito’s Big Decision /La Gran Decisión de Joelito
An English/ Spanish bilingual story about a boy and a burger
Joelito’s Big Decision /La Gran Decisión de Joelito is dedicated to the families of workers who toil in restaurants, chain stores, care washes and other industries that fail to pay a living wage. The bilingual children's book is a story that addresses serious social realities both adults and working families face each day. While most media focuses on adult’s reactions to injustices, Joelito’s Big Decision /La Gran Decisión de Joelito confronts an even more important problem: how the youth will respond to the ever-growing problem of economic inequality in our country. The book is a great education tool for children; daring readers not just to think about the food they're going to eat, but the treatment of workers making their food.
The book is union made, and available at hardballpress.com for $10.
