If you’re into Top 40 hits, I’m betting you’ve heard Avicii’s “Wake Me Up.” But do you know who’s responsible for the vocals? It’s Aloe Blacc. His video for the song is a little bit less dance-inspired and a whole lot more heartwrenching. Watch it here.

Blacc’s video encompasses the mission of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON). They’re a great organization that advocates on behalf of day labourers in the United States. If you’re in the U.S., you can check out their event listings.

While this is a U.S.-based group, there’s a lot that activists in Canada can learn from NDLON. The way their blog posts connect current news to broader labour issues is a great way to engage a wide audience and promote the age-old advice for activists to always ask questions. Their articles based on holding politicians and leaders to account are powerful and pushy. And lest you think NDLON and Blacc’s video are an exclusively-American issue, check out this article on some of the most recent struggles of migrant workers right here in Canada.
