Online and In Person – 10 am Sunday

Rick Wells 

Welcome to a World Without a Job 

This Labor Day we celebrate the workers of our country. That used to be me. I was a teacher here in The Conejo Valley School District. I retired just before COVID. I enjoyed being a teacher. I had great people to work with, including my administrators. I was also very involved with my union. Unions have done a lot for the workers of the world. Today we will look how unions have helped workers be listened to and not abused and how Chalice has taken the place of my union now that I am retired.
