    Setting Up No-Match Action Networks - Jerry Mead-Lucero, Labor Notes
    “Since we launched the rapid-response network, we have saved 351 workers their jobs,” said Tim Bell, CWC’s executive director. “Those are 351 workers who would have probably gone from living-wage jobs to making less than minimum wage.
