  • Look at you or act in ways that scare you?

  • Push you, slap you, choke you or hit you?

  • Stop you from seeing your friends or family members?

  • Control the money in the relationship? Take your money or Social Security check, make you ask for money or refuse to give you money?

  • Make all of the decisions without your input or consideration of your needs?

  • Tell you that you’re a bad parent or threaten to take away your children?

  • Prevent you from working or attending school?

  • Act like the abuse is no big deal, deny the abuse or tell you it’s your own fault?

  • Destroy your property or threaten to kill your pets?

  • Intimidate you with guns, knives or other weapons?

  • Attempt to force you to drop criminal charges?

  • Threaten to commit suicide, or threaten to kill you?

If you answered ‘yes’ to even one of these questions, you may be in an unhealthy or abusive relationship. Don’t hesitate to chat or call us (1-800-799-7233) if anything you read raises a red flag about your own relationship or that of someone you know.

Five Things You Need to Know About Labor Unions

September 20, 2019 Episode.png

Five Things You Need to Know About Labor Unions:

1. The American labor movement sprang to life with industrialization and resulted in many of the workplace protections we enjoy today. (02:02)

2. Union membership peaked in the mid-20th century but struggled with racist and sexist policies as well as corruption within the leadership and anti-union government policies. (11:10)

4. We are also seeing the rise of organized action beyond the public sector as well. (20:04)

5. There is also a rise of collective action inside tech about both worker issues and societal issues. (21:46)
