Can unions save democracy?

Author and organizer Jane McAlevey on her new book, A Collective Bargain: Unions, Organizing, and the Fight for Democracy. Plus, the millionaires who want to pay more taxes, not less.

Jane McAlevey Pt. 1

At a time when workers are under attack at historic levels, strikes are making a comeback. In that, Jane McAlevey sees an opportunity to reset power and politics in America, and clear a path to progressive change.

Jane McAlevey Pt. 2

Jane McAlevey about her powerful new book, A Collective Bargain: Unions, Organizing, and the Fight for Democracy. She makes the case that unions are central to challenging the corporate class and restoring democracy in America. But what about the millions of workers who don’t have a union? For Jane McAlevey, that translates into even more opportunities to build the power of organized labor.

My Newspaper Died

My newspaper died.

Well, technically it still appears, but it has no life, no news, and barely a pulse. It’s a mere semblance of a real paper, one of the hundreds of local journalism zombies staggering along in cities and towns that had long relied on them.

Then it does.
