Five years ago, Asa was a tiny pink baby, and the Workers' Center was like a righteous adolescent—discovering its own power and learning how to wield it.
To quote the **brand new ED job posting**:
"Since 2015 we have grown significantly and have helped organize and win a minimum wage increase in the City of Portland, a statewide earned paid sick leave policy, and to stop the closure of a public health clinic in Portland, among other victories. In addition to campaign wins, we’ve empowered new organizers, grown a reputation for fierce defense of human rights, and used our people power to critique and transform the systems of oppression that devalue and destroy the lives of working people across our State."
The Workers' Center is again poised to accomplish really great things in this time of monumental shifts, and Asa wants to help us get there. So much so that he's going to break from his normal routine of poop jokes to sing a song--Townes Van Zandt's "Pancho & Lefty"-- accompanied by Matt on guitar.
Since he was small, we’ve told Asa that the Workers' Center is about people sticking up for each other when things aren't right, and making up better ways of getting people what they need. If you believe in those goals, too, kindly send a little (or a lot of) cash to this CARE-A-OKE.
