Video: Walmart worker Ernestine Bassett joins White House panel discussion on women organizing in their workplaces

In case you didn't get to watch live, here's the video of today's panel discussion at the White House featuring Walmart worker Ernestine Bassett, and other women workers telling their stories of attempts to organize a union in their workplaces.

The event, headlined by Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis and Senior Advisor to the President Valerie Jarrett, was held to commemorate Women’s History Month and the 100th Anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire. These women are an inspiration to us all, and as Valerie Jarrett noted, their efforts to organize their workplaces show their dedication to making their companies stronger.
