Working Writers. A Literary Collection by the Students of the Worker Education Program.
Workers Education Program, Inc., Boston, MA.
This collection of writings is the culmination of students' study in the Worker Education Program's (WEP) workplace literacy classes. The WEP is a joint labor/management project of the Service Employees International Union Local 285 and unionized health care employers in Massachusetts that offers a range of education, job training, and career ladder programs for workers seeking to improve their communication and language skills, obtain greater job security, and move into higher-graded positions. The 59 authors represented in this publication are students enrolled in WEP's classes in English as a Second Language and writing and communication skills at five worksites in the Boston area. Although a few of the writers were born in the United States, most were born in a variety of other countries. Their English skills and educational levels range from elementary to postgraduate. The writings include anecdotes, personal histories, reflections, and poetry. (KC)
