Freedom at Work

Free video or DVD and study guide on Freedom at Work
Free video or DVD and study guide on Freedom at Work

The Rhode Island Institute for Labor Studies and Research has produced a video
(also DVD) that you can have for free ($20 donation aprreciated) on
the topic of "Freedom at Work." This was part of a project funded
by the RI Council on the Humanities. The video is 15 minutes of interviews
with Rhode Island workers, professors and teachers
is divided into 4 sections to be used for discussion. The
segment topics are:
What Does Freedom in the Workplace Mean?
Is there Freedom in the Workplace?
How can we get Freedom at Work?
Who is Responsible for Seeing that there is Freedom at Work?

There is also a study/discussion guide on the subject that is available for
free. We think that this will lead to interesting discussions with
students or workers about their rights at work.

You can order the free video or DVD and study guide by responding by e-
mail to charlesvschwartz (at) with your address. Please put Freedom at Work
in the subject line.
Or you can write to
Institute for Labor Studies, 99 Bald Hill Rd. Cranston, RI 02920

"n a world where every thing seems to get dumbed down, the Freedom at Work video
reminds us of a vibrant concern for the larger issues in life among ordinary
working people. These speakers provide hope for the future through their
earnest, sincere, and even passionate defense of the Bill of Rights. Push the
pundits aside and listen to fifteen minutes of rank anf file philosophy for a
dose of optimism."
Scott Molloy, Labor History Professor, University of Rhode Island
