Valuable contribution to building the Occupy and Labor movements today March 7 2012
By Paul F - Published on
Format: Paperback
"Rank and File" brilliantly conveys a sense of the molecular basis of the class struggle that occurred from the shop floor and union hall to the farms and schools beginning around 1930. The stories describe what it means to have a working class vanguard in the U.S. through accounts of anti-eviction struggles, democratic and militant workplace organizing, strikes, and the general resistance to the precarious employment and austerity that the U.S. rulers are again forcing on workers today. The personal stories, childhood experiences, family histories with previous class struggles in the U.S. and abroad, and the economic crisis and radicalization of the 1930s all interplay. The bedrock issue in many of the accounts is union democracy, which was a key component of every facet of the class struggle unionism that shook the U.S. during the formation and growth of industrial unions in the 1930s and 1940s. This is invaluable reading for anyone wanting to be part of renewing working class organization and struggle today.
