It is clear that Michigan has an economy that is currently in transition from a high-wage manufacturing base to a lower-wage service based economy. This qualitative research explores worker and labor organizer experiences of the conditions surrounding one category of service workers in Washtenaw County – non-unionized grocery store/retail workers. Implications for organizing low-wage workers in Washtenaw County will be highlighted in this paper.
