The Hudson Legal "Newark" Project : Strike?
"There's been a rumor of a big temp attorney strike at the Hudson Newark project. Apparently, they've been desperate to fill the jobs, and the temps have some decent leverage. Word is some people might put a walk-out together and demand Dr. King's day back."
I really hope this is true. It's time for some structure, people. The firms, temp agencies, predatory banks, and TTT law schools are continuing to eat us alive. How much more non-dischargeable law school debt will they be allowed to pile on top us? For the fifth straight year, will you just sit back and allow them to yet again "deflate your rate"? Will you lose yet another P.T.O. (not just any P.T.O, but one belonging to Dr. King), while profits per partner continue to soar? I hope not.
Also, Tom the Temp will be in D.C. in the coming days and plans to meet up with the newly established "D.C. Temp Attorney Underground". I also want to thank the Philadelphia Black Sheep for doing one hell of a job down in the Rebel Capital. http://blacksheepcontractatty.blogspot.com/ We are utterly disorganized at this point, but what we do have is a good, small first step.
