TN Employees “Working” for their Health on Int’l Human Rights Day

December 10, 2007

Nashville, TN – Tennesseans may be paying closer attention to their pay stubs today, as part of International Human Rights Day. An event in Nashville is one of hundreds nationwide where citizens will meet to talk about healthcare, wage erosion and the right to organize.

Megan Macaraeg with Mid-Tennessee Jobs with Justice says erosion of healthcare benefits, wages not keeping up with inflation, and obstacles to forming unions all are taking a toll on workers' rights.

"The right to have a living wage and the right to be able to organize on the job have been recognized for decades as fundamental."

Macaraeg adds that working Tennesseans facing homelessness and poverty also will share their stories at the "Workers' Rights are Human Rights" rally.

"They'll talk about how hard it is to get by, to get out of the cycle of homelessness when there are a whole host of organizations that are able to prey on people who are living on the economic edge."

The rally will be held at 6:00 PM at the North Nashville Police Precinct, 2231 26th Ave. North.
