Labor Party Advocates: A New Party

Program #MAZT002. Recorded in Cambridge, MA on February 08, 1996.

The U.S. is alone among the industrialized nations without a labor-based party. Working people lack a political organization that represents and promotes their interests. Polls indicate widespread dissatisfaction and disillusionment with the existing political system. More and more Americans view the Democrats and Republicans as simply two factions of the same pro-business party. Labor Party Advocates—its founding convention is coming up in Cleveland in June—is a new party seeking to provide an alternative. Lecture, interview.
