One of the best parts about interviewing community leaders and partners for this podcast is hearing their origin story; how they got to where they are today, and what influences they experienced as a child that led them to their current values and beliefs.

For Sheila Cochran, Milwaukee Area Labor Council AFL-CIO retiree and 2017 Untied Way Campaign Co-chair, both her understanding of the concept of ALICE and her connection to organized labor began at a very early age. We talk about that and much more during this, the longest episode in Living Local history.

If you’re interested in learning more about the labor movement, Sheila recommends that listeners look up Walter Reuther, former president of the United Automobile Workers from 1946 until 1970.

United Way is proud and grateful for our 76 years of partnership with organized labor. Learn more about our Labor Union Endorsements and hear Mary Lou Young reflect on this important relationship.

Enjoy this conversation with one of our most distinguished local labor leaders.
