First of all, who benefits from Working America? Well, only those of us who don't have stock options in Haliburton or stay up nights uncontollably excited about the next day's bank merger. The silenced majority, if you will.
So it is only logical that the country's fastest growing progressive organization would pioneer a new frontier in providing information to workers about their rights, by providing a "free online service to help workers understand their rights and determine whether the boss can really do that--or not." Questions may range from "can I be fired for something I put on my blog"--(probably, unless you are writing about politics) to "can I be fired for being a smoker even if I don't smoke at work"--(yes, in 21 states). Or you may be interested in more everyday subjects such as workers' compensation, pay and benefits or discrimination at the workplace.
To the chagrin of corporate-jet executives everywhere, Working America's "Ask-A-Lawyer" program can and will answer these and other general questions that arise at the workplace. So find out what your rights are, and enjoy the benefits of an organization that helped defeat tax initiatives that would have hurt working familes in Oregon, assisted in getting a Family and Medical Leave act passed in Washington state and fought to get a fair hearing for the Employee Free Choice Act.
Unless of course you come from the school of exploiting your workers. Then you had better prepare yourself. Because Working America is on the job day in and day out, to make sure your day comes to an end.
