What are the prospects for intensifying labor's resistance? Labor journalist Lee Sustar takes a candid look at how unionized and non-unionized workers are resisting in the current crisis. Remarkably, sparks of strength, struggle and success continue to radiate from our labor movement. From the Philadelphia transit works to the University of Illinois graduate employees, old fashioned organizing and labor/community unity have secured the rare successes in the current recession. Organized labor, however, faces difficult circumstances. Open University of the Left welcomes veteran labor journalist Lee Sustar for a presentation and discussion. Free admission.
