New book by Bill Fletcher Jr. essential reading for labor activists in the U.S.


On tonight's episode of Labor Express Radio I will air an interview I conducted with Bill Fletcher Jr., co-author (along with Fernando Gapasin) of the recently released book Solidarity Divided: The Crisis in Organized Labor and a New Path toward Social Justice. I consider the book mandatory reading for any serious labor activist in the United States. It is an excellent campanion to last year's book by Kim Moody, U.S. Labor in Trouble and Transition, which I reviewed last year on Labor Express and here on pilsenprole.
