US Labor Post-WWII: From Reds Under the Bed to the War on Public Sector Workers

When: Sunday, October 14, 2012, 7:45 am to 9:15 am
Where: Boston Workmens' Circle • 1762 Beacon Street • Brookline

Where oh where have the union jobs gone? Trade union membership in the United States reached its high water mark in the first few years after the Second World War, with an overall unionization rate that was close to 45 percent. Today, private sector union membership is under 10 percent. This three session class will take a look at what happened to unions, how the changing nature of the US economy affected organizing, and how the decline in union membership has had negative ripple affects in wages and benefits for all US workers.

Sunday mornings: 10/14, 10/21 and 11/18
