Unions are still alive!
Yes, there are still unions out there fighting for ALL working people. Take a listen to this podcast and you'll get an insider's take on the ongoing struggle against corporate greed.
Fair Start on a Fine Concept
A great source for labor news and updates; it reports on stories that Wall St. media won't and gives resources for those wanting to unionize.
My only complaint is that it pits domestic labor against foreign workers; I hate outsourcing as much as anyone BUT we must remember that the enemy ISN'T those working overseas, it's the CEO's that exploit both them and us alike.
Remember: an injury to one is an injury to all.
Work isn't shipped overseas for the good of workers living there, it's shipped because the bosses feel desperate people struggling for work in China, Mexico, etc. are easier to control and thereby easier to exploit.
A great resource for those wanting to know what is going on - the facts
