Professor Oswalt Quoted in Article on Social Media and Workplace Concerns

Professor Michael OswaltProfessor Michael Oswalt was quoted in the article Digital-Age Workers Are Finding Their Voice on Social Media, published by Law360 on January 23, 2019 (subscription required to view content). The article discusses how workers in the digital age are using social media to amplify workplace concerns and mobilize support, focusing especially on recent strikes at Google and in the Los Angeles public schools. Professor Oswalt noted “[s]ocial media is so special because it offers this very low-cost opportunity to reach people who aren’t already associated with the cause. When people at the periphery of a cause start to buy into it, I think at that point solidarity-building can become real movement-building. Ultimately, that’s what workers are trying to do.”
