Humor And Working Work Stories

With Mary Anne Moorman and Allen Schwartz

Mary Anne Moorman, former shop steward with Local 79 and Allen Schwartz, Seattle ship scaler and Amtrak welder have been creating plays, stories and songs about their work for twenty years. Greg Bee is a management consultant by day and slam artist by night. He's been on national slam tour and is a favorite at Seattle Slam. Schwarts performs in schools, union halls,rallies and festivals throughout the country. Moorman works with businesses to help employees turn everyday events into stories that can be shared with coworkers, families and sometimes, with customers. Storytelling is a new core competency in some organizations and old tellers are finding creative ways to meet the need.
