The Labor Café convenes the Notre Dame community for coffee and casual conversation on contemporary questions about work, workers, and workplaces. What rights and protections should those who work for others have? What's the proper role for government in the economy? How should we address enduring problems of inequality, poverty, and lack of opportunity? And what does Catholic Social Teaching have to say about these labor questions?
Participants choose the concrete topics, all people are welcome, and all opinions are entertained. For the spring 2020 semester, we meet on the final Friday of the month from 5 to 6 p.m. in the Geddes Hall Coffee House.
