"Pete Antonellis' Wednesdays with Workers" virtual event hosted by the American Labor Museum begins January 2021

Haledon, New Jersey - Beginning in 2021, the American Labor Museum/Botto House National Landmark will host a virtual program called Pete Antonellis' Wednesdays with Workers.  Union members are welcome to be featured in 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 American 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.

If you are willing to discuss your job for 5 to 10 minutes, please call the Museum at (973) 595-7953 or email labormuseum@gmail.com.
