Mile High Showdown: A week of direct action aimed at Wall Street banks

Mile High Showdown.

This week, join the Colorado Progressive Coalition in a series of actions aimed at Wall Street Banks. Protesters will be engaged in direct action including marches, delegations, and even a flashmob, specifically targeting Wells Fargo, who holds the largest market share of foreclosures in Colorado. Wells Fargo is also the largest and worst of the subprime predatory mortgage lenders.

Wall Street banks like Wells Fargo have hit people of color especially hard. According to the Denver Fact Sheet on mile-high-showdown.org, “During the housing boom, big banks and their mortgage lending operations were much more likely to put Black and Latino borrowers into higher-cost, subprime loans with a higher risk of default and foreclosure. A recent study finds that the bursting of the housing bubble and the ensuing economic crisis has led to a 66% loss of wealth for Latino households and a 53% loss for Black households, compared to a 16% loss for White households.” Black and Latinos were at least three times more likely than white borrowers to get subprime loans.

Today, protesters kicked off the week of action by visiting the Wells Fargo branch at 17th and Broadway downtown, where they delivered a list of demands. Those demands include asking that Wells Fargo pay its fair share in taxes, the federally mandated 35% tax rate and increase small business loans. Protesters also demand divestment from for-profit prison companies Geo, Inc. and Corrections Corporation of America. Geo is the operator of an immigration detention center in Aurora. Corrections Corporation of America has helped create anti-immigrant legislation in Arizona, according to a 2010 NPR report. You can read more about today’s action and see photos at the Denver Westword Blogs.

5 years since pizza delivery drivers form a union

Recently facebooking, I saw that a few of my friends had posted an article on a group of pizza delivery drivers that had formed a union for the first time. I was so excited about the story that I didn’t notice the date of the article: 9/22/06

Well, its the 5th anniversary of the formation of the American Union of Pizza Delivery Drivers. The formation of a union of food service workers marked a big victory… not only for the workers, but for the labor movement. It’s difficult for fast food workers to organize due to high turnover rates, a workforce of young minimum wage earners, and ease of replacement of the workforce. All of these factors have made it easier for the fiercely anti-union bosses to fight any signs of unionization.

At the time the pizza delivery drivers were going into negotiations with their employer, Domino’s Pizza, Mark Damron, speaking on behalf of the IWW, spoke about the challenges of organizing in the food service industry. [Damron] “said that is changing because older workers are taking service industry jobs that were traditionally held by younger workers.” He went on to say, “As these people move into those jobs, they have higher expectations,” he said. “You are going to see more agitation and expectations among middle-aged men who have been downsized and are now working as baristas or short-order cooks.” ¹

Is this still true? Do older workers doing food service jobs have higher expectations? Unemployment has doubled since 2006, so those looking for work aren’t just those who lost their union jobs due to downsizing and shipping jobs overseas. We have seen some food service workers unionizing or attempting to unionize, with some victories here and there – i.e. Jimmy John’s and Starbucks workers organizing with IWW- but can we continue to grow the movement of food service workers?

Employers must now post notices informing workers of their right to organize, to form, and to join labor unions. This rule goes into effect November 14.

Thank you National Labor Relations Board! This is long overdue. I spoke with about 3 workers just over the past week that told me their bosses said they weren’t allowed form a union.
