I’ve altered the title of the article that I’m linking to, because I think those who support the strikers at Verizon (I do!) should know about these facts and study them. One of them is this: in 1937, when the economy crashed again (like it will now, now that Obama and the Republicans are cutting government spending), there were 4,740 strikes. In 2010? Ten. Time to study history, people.
Read the entire list at the Workers Action website. The title of the article is Ten Lessons for Today’s Unions from Labor’s Militant History.
