Summary "In this expansive collection, labor writer Kim Moody explores the present state and the future possibilities of the US labor movement, as well as evaluating the forces working against it. These wide-ranging, accessible essays ask the key questions: What has happened to union organizing in the United States? Is there an alternative to the strike? How does the increased presence of immigrant and women workers change the balance of forces? What strategies can workers use to counteract company 'union avoidance' campaigns and bureaucratic 'business unionism'? What is the role of socialists in the labor movement? Drawing on his own background as a working-class radical, the works of Karl Marx, and the everyday experiences of nurses, miners, autoworkers, and more, Moody sketches a comprehensive picture of the state of US labor--and points the way forward for a rank-and-file union movement that can win real change"--Back cover.
