The Labor Union Movement: History & Prospects

Program #MOND001. Recorded in Cambridge, MA on March 07, 1996.

For years, unions and working people were in the forefront of social change. The eight-hour day, health coverage, paid vacations and pensions were victories won by organized labor after much struggle. Today, unions are under legal and political attack. Membership, once as high as 35% of the work force, is now at 15% and declining.
