Working Lunch: How operators can take control on workplace issues

Align Public Strategies discusses how the right approach can improve political fortunes

On this week’s episode of Working Lunch, Align Public Strategies asserts that if the employer community ever wants to “win” on workplace issues, they have to reframe wages, scheduling and paid leave as components of the workplace of the future, where flexibility is paramount. The team discusses how operators could approach those issues in a way that improves their political fortunes.

Additionally, the Align crew takes a look at the continued post-election fallout and how brands can protect themselves from state-level political food fights, and concludes with the weekly legislative scorecard.
