Three strikes : miners, musicians, salesgirls, and the fighting spirit of labor's last century by Howard Zinn( )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 1,791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Howard Zinn recounts the dramatic tale of the great coal mine strike in Colorado that culminated in the Ludlow Massacre. The story pits immigrant workers against the National Guard, Mother Jones against the Rockefellers, and corporate power against union organizing, a story that is all too familiar today." "With Dana Frank we join a sit-in strike in a Detroit Woolworth's during the Great Depression where young women slept on the floor, played games and sang songs together, and enjoyed the attention of an amused and curious public that vilified the "chain-store threat" long before Wal-Mart." "Robin D.G. Kelley's tale of a movie theater musician strike in New York gets at the heart of what defines a worker. Facing the inevitable dominance of sound movies, the musicians failed even to agree on demands, and could not prevent members of other unions from crossing their picket lines. What happens when jobs are lost to new technologies, and how can labor help?"--Jacket

Workers & the challenge of globalization by Dana Frank( Recording )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Globalization poses acute challenges for workers. While corporations go transnational, workers remain national. In a race to find cheap labor, businesses move to Third World countries. Unions are largely defenseless in the new economic order. Along with a decline in membership has come an erosion in the standard of living for most workers, whose real wages peaked in 1973. The much-vaunted "level playing field" has left corporations verticaland many workers horizontal. Dana Frank is professor of American Studies at the University of California at Santa Cruz. Her special area of focus is U.S. and international labor issues. Her articles appear in The Nation and other magazines. She is the author of Purchasing Power and Buy American
