Hi pilsenprole readers,
I apologize for such a long break from my previous entry, especially given the importance of the just past election. I have been quite ill over the past few weeks and it has really slowed me down. I will post my own reflections on the election within the next couple days.
In the meantime, I encourage you to read this article by Bill Fletcher Jr. Fletcher is the author of the recently published book Solidarity Divided: The Crisis in Organized Labor and a New Path toward Social Justice, an excellent analysis of the current state of the labor movement in the United States (I encourage all of you to buy a copy). He is also the former President of the TransAfrica Forum and the former Director of Education for the AFL-CIO. He is one of the founders of the Center for Labor Renewal.
Fletcher provides a well thought-out plan for Obama’s first hundred days…
