The Tenement Museum on New York City’s lower east side celebrates the history of workers who formed unions. Ironically the museum is refusing to recognize a union its own employees have formed. Edan Shulz is an organizer with UAW Local 2110.

[Shulz]: “One of the tours that educators give every day is a tour that’s about the garment industry at the turn of the century and the terrible working conditions that people endured and about the fact that people organized to better their working lives. And it is pretty ironic that their own employer is trying to push them away from a union that they want.”
