Organizing Class Power, Turning the Tide Against the Right

For the last forty years, unions and the left more broadly have been in decline. Clearly the business class went on the offensive during this time, but is that the whole story? Veteran organizer Jane McAlevey argues that the left abandoned deep organizing just at the moment when the right was organizing its grassroots, and the result has been the devastating.  She discusses, in concrete terms, how to turn the tide.
