Unions For Beginners David Cogswell. Illustrated by C.M. Butzer.

We live in a time of twilight for the US labor movement. This accessible and vivid history is an important reminder of unions’ contribution to the creation of the US middle class. It brings us through recent history, incorporating the 2008 recession, and the Occupy movement and helps the reader understand current organizing efforts, like the Fight for $15, as the latest example of working people organizing to contest corporate power.
