Revitalizing the Labor Movement
Eugene V. Debs stated that “While there is a lower class, I am in it, while there is a criminal element, I am of it, and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.” This sentiment is reflected in the new attempts to organize workplaces that have built up advanced anti-unionization techniques. There is a focus on inclusion that prior labor movements have lacked, and an admirable hope in the face of grandiose adversity.
A forceful challenge to the state’s complicity in allowing employers to mistreat and undervalue those who keep society running is long overdue, and there is an especially adamant refusal among workers to tolerate constant jabs at their dignity. Our analysts have worked diligently to provide detailed accounts of injustices against those who turn our society’s gears and have set forth to research policies that would help undo the burdens that prevent people from having adequate representation at work. We hope to instill our readers with a certain consciousness about the various inequalities that workers have to process on a daily basis and come to the understanding that standing against injustices is best done collectively.
