Beginning in January of 2021, the American Labor Museum/Botto House National Landmark began hosting a virtual program called Pete Antonellis' Wednesdays with Workers, Union members are welcome to be featured on the program.
Each Wednesday, a different union worker will discuss his/her/their experience on-the-job, from apprentices, to experienced craftspeople, to union leaders and retirees. These programs are designed to inform and to prepare future workers for the Ameican workplaces of the next decade, which is forecasted to include an increase in manufacturing. The program is named for labor and Museum official Pete Antonellis. Episodes of the program may be viewed by visiting the Museum on YouTube and Facebook.
View the interviews with Dan Antonellis, Timothy J. Rudolph, Ann Twomey. Kelly Raeuber, Mark Torres, Esq., and Monika Mahler. View more interviews by visiting the Museum's YouTube channel (Labor Museum).
If you are willing to discuss your job for 5 to 10 minutes and for further information, please call the Museum at (973) 595-7953 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are particulary interested in locating women in non-traditional jobs to discuss their work.
