The Changing World of Work: What Should We Ask of Higher Education?

Scott London

The Changing World of Work: What Should We Ask of Higher Education? by Scott London

The Changing World of Work: What Should We Ask of Higher Education?

There is a pervasive anxiety in America about the future of higher education. Spiraling costs combined with seismic changes in the American workplace raise questions about whether a bachelor's degree is still worth the cost. In a recent cover story, Newsweek magazine asked: "Is College a Lousy Investment?" For a growing number of Americans, the answer appears to be yes.

Today's students accumulate an average of almost $30,000 in debt by the time they graduate. They will go into a job market that looks especially bleak for young...

Government Unions and the Bankrupting of America

Daniel DiSalvo

Government Unions and the Bankrupting of America by Daniel DiSalvoGovernment-workers unions have been political juggernauts in the U.S. since the unseen collective-bargaining-rights revolution of the 1960s and '70s. These unions are different and more powerful than those that battle owners and managers in the private sector. To advance their interests, unions in the public sector have created cartels with their political allies, mostly in the Democratic Party, to the exclusion of the taxpaying public.

In this Broadside, Daniel DiSalvo shows us how this government takeover happened and tells us what can be done to protect the public interest. The fiscal consequences...

Why Labor Organizing Should Be a Civil Right: Rebuilding a Middle-Class Democracy by Enhancing Worker Voice

Richard D. Kahlenberg & Moshe Z. Marvit

Why Labor Organizing Should Be a Civil Right: Rebuilding a Middle-Class Democracy by Enhancing Worker Voice by Richard D. Kahlenberg & Moshe Z. MarvitOf the many causes of increased inequality-globalization, changes in technology, and the adoption of regressive tax policies-the virtual collapse of the American labor movement over the past quarter-century ranks as a significant, if underanalyzed, problem. In Why Labor Organizing Should Be a Civil Right, Richard D. Kahlenberg and Moshe Z. Marvit argue that the lack of adequate worker protections is to blame, laying out the case for taking the issue beyond the confines of labor law by amending the Civil Rights Act so that it prohibits discrimination against workers trying to organize a union.

Rebel Voices: An IWW Anthology

Joyce L. Kornbluh

Rebel Voices: An IWW Anthology by Joyce L. Kornbluh

The Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), commonly known as the Wobblies, were among the most well-respected and largest unions in the United States in the early 20th century. Having organized the first major automobile industry strike as well as major coalfield and transit workers strikes, the IWW has a history of being a fierce advocate for the worker. Long before most other unions, IWW welcomed women, African-Americans, and immigrants into their ranks, making the Wobblies among the most progressive organizations of the era. As the only comprehensive history of the IWW, this chronicle anthologizes...

Jobs with Justice: 25 Years, 25 Voices

Eric Larson

Jobs with Justice: 25 Years, 25 Voices by Eric Larson

Through a series of interviews and essays, this compendium gives voice to the community, labor, immigrant, student, and faith activists that have built Jobs with Justice (JwJ). The book speaks on both the core principles of the organization for workers' rights and the experiences since its founding in 1987. Though the discussion reflects on the last 25 years of the JwJ coalition, it also looks openly and optimistically at the next 25. It includes the perspectives of longtime national leaders, like founder Larry Cohen, newcomers like Ai-Jen Poo of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, and the...

Direct Action & Sabotage: Three Classic IWW Pamphlets from the 1910s

Elizabeth Gurley Flynn & Walker C. Smith & William E. Trautmann

Direct Action & Sabotage: Three Classic IWW Pamphlets from the 1910s by Elizabeth Gurley Flynn & Walker C. Smith & William E. Trautmann

The pamphlets reprinted in this collection were first published in the 1910s amidst great controversy; the significant works included are "Direct Action and Sabotage" by William E. Trautmann, "Sabotage: Its History, Philosophy and Function" by Walker C. Smith, and Elizabeth Gurley Flynn's "Sabotage: The Conscious Withdrawal of the Workers' Industrial Efficiency."

The activist authors of the texts in this collection challenged...

Strike!

Jeremy Brecher

Strike! by Jeremy Brecher

Since its original publication in 1972, no book has done as much as Jeremy Brecher's Strike! to bring American labor history to a wide audience.

In this expanded edition, Brecher brings the story up to date with revised chapters that cover the 40 years since the original edition, placing the problems faced by working people today in the context of 140 years of labor...

New Forms of Worker Organization: The Syndicalist and Autonomist Restoration of Class-Struggle Unionism

Immanuel Ness

New Forms of Worker Organization: The Syndicalist and Autonomist Restoration of Class-Struggle Unionism by Immanuel Ness

As bureaucratic labor unions are currently under assault throughout the world, most have surrendered the achievements of the mid-20th century, when the working class was a militant force for change. As unions implode and weaken, workers are independently forming their own unions, rooted in the tradition of syndicalism and autonomism—and unions rooted in the tradition of self-directed action are auguring a new period of class struggle throughout the world. In Africa, Asia, the Americas, and Europe, workers are rejecting leaders and forming authentic class-struggle unions rooted in sabotage, direct...

Continental Crucible: Big Business, Workers and Unions in the Transformation of North America

Richard Roman & Edur Velasco Arregui

Continental Crucible: Big Business, Workers and Unions in the Transformation of North America by Richard Roman & Edur Velasco ArreguiThe crucible of North American neoliberal transformation is heating up, but its outcome is far from clear. Continental Crucible examines the clash between the corporate offensive and the forces of resistance from both a pancontinental and a class struggle perspective. This book also illustrates the ways in which the capitalist classes in Canada, Mexico, and the United States used free-trade agreements to consolidate their agendas and organize themselves continentally. The failure of traditional labor responses to stop the continental offensive being waged by big business has led workers and...

Solidarity Unionism: Rebuilding the Labor Movement from Below

Staughton Lynd

Solidarity Unionism: Rebuilding the Labor Movement from Below by Staughton LyndCritical reading for all who care about the future of labor, Solidarity Unionism draws deeply on Staughton Lynd's experiences as a labor lawyer and activist in Youngstown, Ohio, and on his profound understanding of the history of the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO). The book helps us begin to put not only movement, but also vision, back into the labor movement. There is a blossoming of rank-and-file worker organizations throughout the world that are countering rapacious capitalists and labor leaders who think they know more about work and struggle than their own members. To secure...
