It’s been decades since the U.S. has had a powerful labor movement and recent efforts to revive it have mostly fallen flat. But there is hope for a new U.S. labor movement. It’s a vision that goes beyond the unions. On this edition, we’ll hear from an array of panelists discussing the future of labor in the U.S. recorded at the 2010 Left Forum in New York City.
