TheLabor DAO Introduction

LaborDAO will be the first decentralized community focused on supporting workers. We’re focusing our efforts on something different: building worker power. Unionized and non-unionized workers around the globe, collectively known as the labor movement, have successfully achieved gains for the working class for over 100 years. We will be actively sharing and creating content about past and present achievements by the labor movement. We’ll also be sharing challenges the labor movement is currently facing. According to the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), “everyone has the right to form and to join trade unions for the protection of his interests.” Due to many factors, including anti-union tactics by corporations, ​​union membership is declining all across the OECD and most other countries around the globe. The United States Labor has seen a recent surge of high profile union organizing across many industries at Starbucks, Amazon, Kellogg’s, Apple, John Deere, Sierra Club, Greenpeace, Union of Concerned Scientists, to name a few. Still, union membership in the United States faces a steady decline. The United States is falling far behind other industrialized nations in union membership despite a wave of strikes in 2020, the “Great Resignation” and support for unions being the highest it has been in decades. Corporations have endless financial resources to stop organizing efforts. In order to turn these trends around, workers must have their own financial resources to organize and freely affiliate with labor organizations if they choose to. There is a need for an independent funding stream for workers who want to organize unions, bargain with employers, and strike if necessary. All over the world and along the supply chain, workers are organizing to resist low pay, exploitation, and poor working conditions. For those reasons, we are building a community of people coordinated by Web3 who want to support workers in their efforts to gain respect, dignity, and fair pay.
