Is Labor A Lost Cause? July 6, 2012

Exploring if unions can rebound and once again act strongly in the interest of ordinary workers.

On this week’s Moyers & Company, Bill talks to two people who can best answer the question: Stephen Lerner and Bill Fletcher, Jr. The architect of the SEIU’s Justice for Janitors movement, Lerner directed SEIU’s private equity project, which worked to expose a Wall Street feeding frenzy that left the working class in a state of catastrophe. Fletcher took his Harvard degree to the Massachusetts shipyards, and worked as a welder before becoming a labor activist. He served as Assistant to the President of the AFL-CIO, and is author of the upcoming book “They’re Bankrupting Us!”: And 20 Other Myths about Unions.

I do hope Citizens United is repealed – it’s ignorance in the highest order…Remember: we needed unions to protect children who were miners, employed by the Rockerfellers…  Lara/Trace
