MEXICO CITY (AP) – Prosecutors in the border state of Sonora, northern Mexico, said Thursday they found a rotting corpse with clothes that match the description of an indigenous rights leader who went missing there is almost three weeks old.

The prosecutor’s office said DNA tests would be carried out on the body found half-buried in a rural area to determine whether it was that of Tomás Rojo Valencia, a leader of the indigenous Yaqui community.

“At the scene, several pieces of evidence, including clothing, were collected that match what his family said Tomás Rojo wore on the day he left his house, in particular a red scarf around his neck,” the office said in a statement.

The body was found in a semi-desert area near the Yaqui town of Vicam by a local person who was collecting firewood.

Coming the same day two journalists were found murdered, the discovery of what appears to be leader Yaqui’s corpse is bad news for President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who has been criticized for his hostility towards journalists and his inability to protect them.

The discovery of what appears to be Rojo Valencia’s body will be a particularly hard blow to the president, who has made it his special project to bring justice to the Yaquis, whom he has described as the most persecuted indigenous group in Mexico.

Rojo Valencia has been the spokesperson for the Yaquis in past conflicts over land and water rights.

He disappeared on May 27 amid tensions over roadblocks on the Yaqui Expressway to protest gas pipes, water pipes and railway lines that have passed through their ancestral territory without consulting them or their give a lot of benefits.

In February, the conflict over roadblocks came to a head with the death of an Indigenous man killed when a truck driver passed through a Yaqui roadblock, striking a member of the group.

Businessmen and truckers in Sonora state complain that roadblocks seriously affect the flow of raw materials and export goods, and said protesters are sometimes abusive or demand money for allow them to pass.

Intermittent roadblocks affected the main road that leads to the industrial center of Hermosillo, and from there to the US border. The route is essential for the import and export of automobiles and auto parts, electronics, and other goods.

Perhaps best known abroad for the mystical and visionary powers attributed to them by writer Carlos Castaneda, the Yaquis stubbornly fought the Mexican government’s brutal campaign to eliminate the tribe in the late 1800s and early 1900s. 1900.

But they were largely defeated by 1900, and dictator Porfirio Diaz began moving them from their fertile farmlands to less valuable land or virtual enslavement on haciendas as far away as the Far Eastern state of Yucatan.

In 2020, López Obrador visited Yaqui territory for the establishment of the Yaqui People’s Justice Commission, and he said he plans to apologize on behalf of the government for the genocidal war waged against them. .

The commission promised housing, development projects and a greater voice for impoverished Yaqui communities, but some Yaquis are not participating in the talks and the deal has failed to quell protests, which sometimes demand large compensation.

The Gender Pay Gap by Dr E.

The postponed and rescheduled 2020 Olympics are just a few weeks away. If the Japanese and international Olympic committees can manage a safe environment for COVID, I welcome them. I consider this event to be one of the purest forms of athletic competition. Participants train and compete fairly in a physical prowess test.

If you want, imagine yourself as a participant in the 100 meter final. When you arrive at the starting area, you will find the starting block in your lane 18 meters behind those of your competitors. The race begins with little to no hope that you will overcome the disadvantage placed on you.

In real life, this is the type of disadvantage imposed on the average American woman. PayScale, a compensation research organization, says that in 2021, the average American woman earns 82 cents for every dollar earned by the average American, or 18 cents less!

To raise awareness of this disparity, an equal pay day is observed. This is the day the average woman has to work in a new year to achieve pay parity with the average man’s earnings for the past year. In 2021, Equal Pay Day was March 24. This date is calculated without taking into account experience or type of employment.

The pay gap between men and women has long been the subject of controversy and debate. Few will argue about its existence, but there is significant disagreement as to the cause. Some would argue that women’s career choices and the stereotypical obligations of “femininity” – housewife, wife and motherhood – reduce their “time on the clock” and, therefore, their resulting income.

Others argue that historically and contemporaneously, women’s work and performance have been undervalued and, among other reasons, employers have systematically practiced paying lower wages in career fields dominated by women. I support the latter position.

Despite the 1963 Equal Pay Act, women throughout their careers continue to earn less than men, and this disparity occurs as early as a year after university. Christianne M. Corbett, senior researcher at the American Association of University Women, co-authored a study titled “Graduating to a Pay Gap”. For university graduates, research has shown that after controlling for variables such as major, occupation, and number of hours worked, women’s pay was 82% of their male counterparts one year later. graduation. In this study, on average, men earned almost $ 8,000 more than women a year after graduation.

Unfortunately, these “averages” do not reflect the wage disparities inherent in taking racial and ethnic differences into account. Women of color face an even larger gender pay gap, according to PayScale. You don’t have to be an Einstein to understand the impact of this pay gap on single mothers and dual-income families.

If the circumstances weren’t bad enough, COVID-19 has had a disparate negative impact on women. Almost daily we learn from the media that the greatest impact of this pandemic has been on women and it is not difficult to understand that those who start further in the race are suffering the most.

An examination of the facts of this systemic discrimination is instructive, but information alone cannot make a difference. As with any other form of discrimination, change can only occur with a major push from the discriminator or those with the power to lead the necessary change. In this case, employers need to evaluate and monitor their policies and practices to ensure compliance with true anti-discrimination goals.

In the absence of clarification from employers, lawmakers must be open to reviewing and modernizing existing laws and policies. Both should work to increase the transparency of compensation practices for the identification and correction of disparities.

Lives depend on it!

The writer is president of the National Congress of Black Women.

I was looking at the rule of professional conduct Rule 1.6, the rule of confidentiality, and I am curious as to whether my letter of honor with a client is confidential and falls within the scope of privilege. Is it?

Samuel C. Stretton.

Lawyer-client professional secrecy, which is statutory in nature and also rests on a common law basis, has been extended by Professional Conduct Rule 1.6. From now on, a lawyer cannot reveal any information relating to the representation of the client. There are exceptions under Rule 1.6 (c) involving threats of death or grievous bodily harm, to prevent a client from committing a crime that could result in substantial harm to the financial interests or property of others, to prevent or mitigate the consequences of any criminal or fraudulent act in which the services of the lawyer have been used, to establish a claim or defense on behalf of the lawyer, a controversy between the lawyer and the client, or to obtain advice on the lawyer’s compliance with the Rules of Professional Conduct. In other words, if a lawyer asks someone else for advice on the rules of conduct, there may be an exception to the rule for a lawyer to defend himself by saying that he has sought advice on the question.

As an intellectually curious person with a passion for DIY, I have always embraced learning new skills. This includes understanding how automobiles work and the ability to maintain my own vehicles.

In June 2019, I walked into my local garage, Dover Paint & Varnish (DP&V), to inquire about an apprenticeship as an automotive technician. As the name suggests, the Littleworth Road family business started selling household supplies including paint, wallpaper, varnish and glass. Over the years, the hardware and convenience store has evolved into several automotive segments including: gasoline and diesel, towing, and maintenance / repair. That alone is a fascinating story, but I digress.

After a few conversations with founder and co-owner Richard “Dickie” Kay, I learned my timing was right when it came to the opportunity to learn and make money. I then met service manager David “Nappy” Napalitano who called me over on a Saturday to assemble and balance the tires on the 1990 Volkswagen Corrado that I was left. This first lesson was followed by a few others. It wasn’t pretty, but with the struggle comes growth.

Don Diehl’s new book now available https://i-racconti.com/don-diehls-new-book-now-available/ https://i-racconti.com/don-diehls-new-book-now-available/#respond Thu, 17 Jun 2021 15:43:38 +0000 https://i-racconti.com/don-diehls-new-book-now-available/ Sapulpa-born writer Don Diehl’s historical fiction novel “INVASIONS: ‘Murder of the Indian’” is now available for purchase.

Sapulpa-born writer Don Diehl’s historical fiction novel “INVASIONS: ‘Murder of the Indian’” is now available for purchase. Diehl says the five-year “read, research, ramble, and“ write ”project is sure to be a blockbuster (one way or the other). “Seriously, whatever ‘list’ she makes, hopefully it’s on yours,” Diehl said as he announced the release date.

There have been a lot of inquiries about the project. Book dedications including one on Monday June 21 on the lawn of the Heart of Route 66 Museum in Sapulpa from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. during the Hemmings Great Race.

“Invasions” is the 12th self-published book by Diehl Publications but it is the writer’s first historical fiction novel.

On the very day of the arrival of the ordeal, the morning devotion shared by the Diehls said: “It does not matter whether your work is recognized by the whole world or that only God sees it. It doesn’t matter if you get paid a lot of money or don’t get any financial compensation. Your work is precious. And you want him to be blessed by God. – from Power of a Praying Woman by Stormie Omartian.

Yet the Diehls believe that every reader will find the book unique.

Cover for INVASIONS: ‘Murder of the Indian’

“This book is several things,” says Diehl. “First of all, it is the story of a young traveler on horseback and by train in the late 1890s. At the suggestion of his grandfather, Tomachichi Jon Harjo saddles his Sagebrush horse and sets off to go see the world “. His adventures, as with time, are a mixture of his enthusiasm for life and his disappointment with the way life unfolds for so many people. He loves the Creator and his creation. Tommy has his detractors and must stand up for his beliefs. All is not beautiful. The trip helps Tommy sort out the real from the… well, not so real; the truth of lies; facts of fiction; and at Wounded Knee Creek, almost loses faith in God and man.

“Second, the book is a brief history of the early American families who migrated to the continent and bred across North America. They lived and lived in the wigwams of the riverside villages; in the tipis of hunting camps across the plains and mountains; in the dwellings of the cliffs of agricultural centers; and sophisticated hilltop towns with well-developed governments. They have developed political, religious and economic systems, as have societies in other parts of the world, sometimes to their detriment; sustainable lifestyles, family values, cultures and traditions. They made themselves priests, prophets, kings, leaders while trying to maintain the free voice of the individual, and always drawn to the truth of a creator God – the Supreme and the Great Spirit.

This book then focuses on the period beginning when these early Americans welcomed European explorers (intruders and invaders) to their shores at the end of the 13th century, through the accomplishment of something called ‘Manifest Destiny’ at the end of the 19th century This book is about INVASION!

“I could have chosen almost any Indian tribe, but living in Muscogee (Creek) country, it made sense to focus on the ‘Nation’ the author is most familiar with,” Diehl said.

Diehl says there are many opinions at least explored if not expressed in this work, “but [its] not our primary focus. Our Christian view of the world consists in understanding “His history” and the history of man, in particular of the man named “Indian”.

INVASIONS: “Killing of the Indian” sells for $ 19.95 and will be available at the book signing on June 21, or you can send a check plus $ 5 for shipping and handling to Don Diehl, 842 N. Ross, Sapulpa, OK 74066. Diehl says his first 200 copies will be autographed.

BROCKTON – Looking back at 68 years of life, Michael Bishop has done just about everything.

He made a career in the New York City Fire Department. Bishop has been playing guitar since he was a teenager and received offers of recording contract. He was also an inventor and amateur archaeologist.

“I’ve had more than a busy life,” said Bishop, originally from Brooklyn, New York. “I don’t think I could change it for anything.”

He has lived in Brockton for 15 years and says the city reminds him of Long Island, New York. Bishop likes that Champions City has more space and that the pace is slower than in New York.

Brockton was where Bishop lived when diagnosed with prostate cancer and began palliative care treatment now that the disease has spread to his bones.

He said his cancer developed following exposure to dust and debris from September 11, 2001, at the former World Trade Center site in New York City.

Bishop joined the New York City Fire Department at the age of 25 in 1979 and served until the age of 46, retiring as a lieutenant in 1999.

A photo of Michael Bishop as a New York City firefighter hangs in his Brockton home on Friday, June 11, 2021. Bishop worked for the service for over 20 years and retired as a lieutenant .  He responded as a volunteer on September 11.

He worked in the city’s fire stations, responded to fires in various types of buildings and carried out rescues.

“(Fighting the fires) was the best job in the world,” Bishop said. “It was like an adrenaline rush.”

He followed in his father’s footsteps, Homer Bishop, who was also a New York City firefighter and chief, the second-highest position in the department. Homer Bishop died of leukemia at age 57.

Michael Bishop, a retired firefighter from New York, has memorabilia hanging in his Brockton home on Friday, June 11, 2021.

Bishop has his father’s helmet in his office and his own helmet that he wore when he volunteered at the old World Trade Center site on September 11, 2001. This helmet still has dust from Ground Zero on it and a small American flag attached to it.

At the time of the response on September 11, Bishop was retired. He and other retired firefighters and volunteers worked at the site for about two weeks.

Why not trade for Deshaun Watson instead of Aaron Rodgers? – Denver Post https://i-racconti.com/why-not-trade-for-deshaun-watson-instead-of-aaron-rodgers-denver-post/ https://i-racconti.com/why-not-trade-for-deshaun-watson-instead-of-aaron-rodgers-denver-post/#respond Wed, 16 Jun 2021 01:30:02 +0000 https://i-racconti.com/why-not-trade-for-deshaun-watson-instead-of-aaron-rodgers-denver-post/ Denver Post Broncos writer Ryan O’Halloran releases his Broncos Mailbag periodically during the offseason.

Denver Post Broncos writer Ryan O’Halloran releases his Broncos Mailbag periodically during the offseason. Submit your questions to Ryan here.

I always hear reporters saying that Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst doesn’t matter if they trade Aaron Rodgers now or if they wait until March 2022 because their pay will be choices. 2022 Draft. There may be more teams other than the Raiders and Broncos joining the auction due to how things turn out with their quarterback situations. I understand. What I don’t hear, because of Rodgers’ age, is that you just wasted another year with him and now I would pay less for him next year than this year. Thoughts?

– RT Phillips, Austin, Texas

Rodgers will be 38 in December, which means he will be 39 in December 2022, so yes that should have an impact on his business value. Acquire Rodgers now and the price should be at least two first-round picks and two players. After playing 17 games (plus the playoffs) and absorbing untold physical penalties, I’d cut the price down to a first-round pick and two player.

Here’s an interesting scenario: Let’s say Rodgers retires instead of holding Packers training camp next month. If the Broncos are a surprise team in the NFL this year and are 6-3 or 7-4 as the trade deadline approaches, would GM George Paton still be looking for a trade for Rodgers? I said he would, but he would have some influence over what he should give up.

Since Super Bowl 50 and the departure of Peyton Manning, this team seems to be stuck on elite defense and hope the offense is good enough when it needs to be. No matter who coach or quarterback, that philosophy led to a five-year playoff drought. Again, this offseason most of the free agent money has gone to defense with our first draft pick and we’ve added another fellow quarterback (Teddy Bridgewater). Assuming the quarter room stays the same from now on, is there any reason to believe the sixth time is the charm?

-Steve Shultz

I disagree with Steve that the Broncos’ team-building philosophy is to spend tons of resources on defense, not offense.

First, more free agents who play on defense are entering the market than they are on offense – cornerbacks, passer and linebackers are available every March, but not so much for quarterbacks, receivers and linebackers. left tackles.

The reason the Broncos used their first-round pick this year on cornerback Pat Surtain II and spent free agent money on cornerbacks Ronald Darby and Kyle Fuller is simple: They have so many players. offensives in place.

Watch the first two rounds of the 2019-20 draft: tight end Noah Fant, wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, quarterback Drew Lock, left guard Dalton Risner and wide receiver KJ Hamler.

Building up the defense this offseason is as much about the Broncos’ defensive failures over the past two years as it is about improving the showdown with their rivals AFC West.

Don’t you think the Broncos brass had better go after Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson. Maybe he should sit for 6-8 games this year, but maybe they would sit for 10-12 years versus Rodgers, who can give us four years?

– Rick, Fort Worth

There are issues with Watson’s lawsuit right now. His legal troubles make him untouchable. It would be difficult for a team to defend to their fans that giving up 2-3 first-round picks and multiple players would make sense when you don’t know how long a potential suspension would be.

If Rodgers have four good years left, the Broncos should jump at the chance. We know it will be available in week 1.

In February, if Rodgers and Watson had declared their intentions on the same day (they wanted to leave Green Bay and Houston, respectively), I probably would have chosen Watson as Plan A for the reason stated by Rick – he could be the quarterback here for over a decade.

College sport is in the midst of its most significant changes in a generation. Current athletes, the NCAA, state lawmakers and members of Congress have all proposed rules that would provide athletes with varying degrees of new protections and opportunities to earn money by selling their name, image rights. and likeness (NIL) while playing in college.

Who will have the final say on these new rules? How big will the new opportunities be? These issues will be settled in the spring and summer of 2021, and the space below will be dedicated to providing you with the most recent and detailed information on this process.

Go to a section: Calendar | Chronology | Legislation | The beginning

The last

The likelihood of a federal law establishing a clear set of rules for Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) to materialize in the near future appeared to decrease dramatically in June as members of Congress moved into a division partisan on the scope of reform needs.

The Senate Trade Committee held its sixth hearing on university sports legislation on June 17. The two-hour discussion highlighted the growing rift between Republicans and Democrats. Committee chair Maria Cantwell (D-WA) told reporters after the hearing that it was safe to assume that no bills would come to a vote until the name laws came into force, the image and resemblance of the states in early July.

The panelists included three female athletes – two recent graduates and a current Vanderbilt student – and Marty McNair, the father of late Maryland football player Jordan McNair. They urged Congress to include a basic health and safety standard as well as additional rights for college athletes in any legislation to reform NCAA rules.

“It is impossible to separate NIL from health and safety concerns,” former Georgetown basketball player Sari Cureton told senators Thursday. “Because it’s our bodies that built this industry.”

NCAA executives have asked Congress for help in passing legislation that would create a uniform NIL standard across all 50 states. Republicans who have proposed bills say they have tried to keep the scope narrow by only dealing with NIL rules in an attempt to get something through quickly. Democrats who proposed the bills argue that now is the time for more substantial changes to the NCAA to help athletes in areas that go beyond giving them the opportunity to earn money while in their lives. studies.

Cureton said the general public underestimates the priority coaches place on winning matches and sports departments place a good public image. Her fellow panelists, former UCLA track athlete Christina Chenault and Vanderbilt runner Kaira Brown, said these priorities often come at the expense of athlete education, health or other needs. They urged Congress to ensure that any legislation they pass on varsity sports keeps athletes (not institutions) at the center of their concerns.

Of the dozen senators who asked questions and shared comments during the hearing, only one was from the Republican Party. Many Republicans who have been at the forefront of NIL legislation decided not to attend the hearing, according to a Sports Illustrated report.

Both sides were working on a compromise under Cantwell’s leadership, but appear to have reached an impasse. The result is that varsity athletes will likely have different levels of opportunities to earn money from endorsements this summer depending on which state they attend school in.

Calendar: the continuation

May or June: The Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the antitrust case of Alston v. NCAA March 31. While the case is not directly related to the name, image and likeness legislation, the question put to the judges could play a role in shaping the laws. Later this year. The NCAA argues that it should be responsible for defining the line between amateurism and professional sports. The court’s ruling and the language they use to share it could prove to be influential in future legal battles. The Supreme Court is expected to release its decision before the end of June.

June 9: Mark Emmert and several others are expected to speak at a Senate hearing on congressional college sports legislation.

June 23: The NCAA Division I board is expected to act, “if possible”, on the proposed changes to the NIL rule changes.

1st of July: State laws should begin to take effect. Athletes attending school in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, New Mexico and Texas may begin accepting sponsorship agreements on that date. The NCAA could take legal action against the states before July 1 and seek an injunction from a judge which, if granted, could delay enactment of the law.

Timeline: how we got here

September 30, 2019: California passes a law introduced by Senator Nancy Skinner that, from 2023, will prohibit schools from punishing athletes who accept sponsored money while in college. The NCAA called the legislation an “existential threat” to college amateur sports when it was introduced months earlier.

October 29, 2019: The NCAA Board of Governors unanimously agrees that it is time to modernize its rules of name, image and likeness. The board calls on the three divisions of the NCAA to establish rules by January 2021 that allow athletes to make money while maintaining “the college model.”

April 29, 2020: An NCAA-appointed task force is outlining its suggestions on how Division I should change its rules, including details on opportunities and restrictions for future agreements with athletes. The Division I board formally submitted these proposed changes in November 2020 and plan to put them to a vote in January 2021.

June 12, 2020: Florida passes state law with an expected effective date of July 1, 2021, dramatically reducing the time it takes to create a uniform national solution.

July 22, 2020: Emmert, the president of the NCAA, reiterates a request from Congress for help in creating a federal NIL law at a Senate hearing in Washington, DC Several senators have urged Emmert and the NCAA to broaden the scope of their reform efforts if they wanted Capitol Hill’s help.

Aug 2, 2020: A group of Pac-12 football players are threatening to boycott the season while sharing a list of demands that included giving the players a share of the sports department’s revenue. A similar group of national stars formed a week later and declared their intention to form a college football players association in the future.

September 24, 2020: Representatives Anthony Gonzalez, R-Ohio, and Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., Are introducing a federal bill that would allow NIL agreements with certain restrictions in hopes of preventing endorsements from disrupting the recruiting process.

December 10, 2020: Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., Introduces federal legislation that would allow certain NIL agreements and also create an antitrust exemption that would protect the NCAA from certain types of future lawsuits.

December 16, 2020: The Supreme Court has agreed to hear the NCAA’s appeal against a federal judge’s ruling in the Alston v. NCAA. While not directly related to the NIL rules, the Supreme Court’s ruling in this case could impact the NCAA’s control over the definition of amateurism in the future.

December 17, 2020: The senses. Cory Booker, DN.J., and Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Present legislation calling for a major overhaul of NCAA rules and college sport governance.

January 11, 2021: NCAA Division 1 council decides to indefinitely delay its vote on name, image and likeness rules, citing concerns raised by a letter from the Department of Justice regarding possible antitrust implications of changing its rules. Emmert, the president of the NCAA, said he was “frustrated and disappointed” by the delay.

February 4, 2021: Senator Chris Murphy, D-Conn., And Representative Lori Trahan, D-Mass., Are introducing federal legislation that would create a completely unlimited market for varsity athlete approval agreements.

March 31, 2021: The Supreme Court heard argument in the Alston v. NCAA.

April 1, 2021: NCAA President Mark Emmert met three male basketball players trying to raise awareness – using the hashtag #NotNCAAProperty – of what they see as unfair treatment of college athletes. The players have asked the NCAA to pass a temporary blanket waiver that would allow all athletes to make money from sponsorship deals next school year while more permanent decisions take shape.

Legislation

The NCAA has asked Congress for help in creating a federal NIL law. While several federal options have been offered, it is becoming increasingly likely that state laws will begin to take effect before a nationwide change is made. There are six states with NIL laws already in place and over a dozen others that are actively pursuing legislation.

The second part of Selena: the series hit Netflix last month and the series, which told the story of beloved singer Tejano Selena’s rise to fame, was highly anticipated, debuting in December 2020. Sadly, both sides were poorly received by viewers and critics. Now people involved in the project are speaking out about the show’s mismanagement, including the writers’ claims that they were underpaid and the show was given a much smaller budget than through the streamer than other projects.

In an article from the Los Angeles Times, sources reveal that the series was “commissioned as a Latin American original with a corresponding modest budget – well under $ 2 million per episode.” In contrast, Netflix’s The Crown is said to have a budget of $ 13 million per episode.

“The show kind of went through what Selena went through,” said co-executive producer Henry Robles. “From the start she wanted to sing in English. But people didn’t know what to do with her. The music industry didn’t know how to categorize [her] or they expected certain things from her because she was Mexican-American. And it’s similar to this show. “

Gladys Rodriguez told Time that she feels like the show never had a fair chance.

“I feel like our work has been belittled from the start. We never had a fair chance,” Rodriguez said. “Representation is what we want, but it goes beyond that – we want to be treated equally. “

And for the writers of the show, this lack of fair luck and equal treatment is evident in the pay. Because the series had a budget of $ 2 million per episode, it allowed the production to take advantage of a loophole in the Writers Guild of America rules for writers’ pay rates. According to some staff, they were paid between 30 and 50 percent less for their work on the series, which was shot in Mexico, than the typical salary for series that shoot in the United States.

A Netflix spokesperson responded to the claims, telling the Time that “the company believes the authors were fairly remunerated based on quotes negotiated by their representation in the United States.”

Even with the allegations, showrunner Moises Zamora says he’s “really proud” of what they’ve been able to accomplish with the series.

“The fact that we were able to convince 14 Latinx writers to get into this business, with all the challenges we faced … my goal is to continue to argue that our stories are worth telling – they deserve so much. than any other production, “he said. “I’m really proud that we were able to put on an incredible show considering what we were given.”

Selena: the series is now streaming on Netflix.

Why the stars of the New Yorker did not join his union https://i-racconti.com/why-the-stars-of-the-new-yorker-did-not-join-his-union/ https://i-racconti.com/why-the-stars-of-the-new-yorker-did-not-join-his-union/#respond Sun, 13 Jun 2021 04:00:00 +0000 https://i-racconti.com/why-the-stars-of-the-new-yorker-did-not-join-his-union/ Neither effort has gained ground.

Neither effort has gained ground.

Many writers, it seemed, valued their status as independent entrepreneurs. Some, led by Tad Friend and Jia Tolentino, used the threat of a union – and the suggestion that Condé Nast had illegally classified many of them as contractors, which the company disputes – to set up a process by which some writers might become health benefit employees. An agreement was finalized at the end of last month.

And that has left the most prominent writers mostly on the sidelines in recent weeks as a bitter labor dispute consumed their beloved magazine. The New Yorker is currently working on the final details of a contract, and people on both sides seemed optimistic that a deal could be reached this week. They have agreed to a starting salary of $ 55,000 and are discussing issues such as caps for potential increases in health care costs, people familiar with the talks said – even as the Guild threatens. to strike.

Many writers have tweeted in support. But no writer showed up at a protest outside Condé Nast’s headquarters on May 1, and none appeared to be present at a march outside the home of Condé Nast’s global content manager, Anna Wintour, on June 8.

The dispute has caught the industry’s attention not only because of the employees’ joy in holding the brand hostage in public, but also because it highlights the big issues facing contemporary media. What power can employers exercise over their employees? Are junior employees apprentices or a permanent creative subclass? And as the labor movement seeks to level the playing field, will the stars follow?

Everything is especially personal at The New Yorker, where the campaign pitted a culture of personal relationships and deep trust against a group of employees who reject the idea that they should be subjected to the whims of any boss, as benign as it is.

The easiest to understand element of the dispute is the salaries of production workers, the group that includes everyone from fact checkers to social media editors. Some salaries start as low as $ 42,000 a year and stay below $ 60,000 after 20 years of work.

But other tensions revolve around the feeling that junior jobs rarely offer promotions through the ranks of writers, and no clear career path.
