"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

Review: There is Power in a Union

There is Power in a UnionThere is Power in a Union by Philip Dray

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fantastic and comprehensive history of organized labor in America. Covers the labor movement from it's inception in 18th century pre-Revolutionary America up through the most recent struggles for undocumented immigrants to receive some measure of protection from exploitation.

Along the way you meet an interesting cast of characters who make the history of the American Labor Movement so fascinating.

Highly recommended!
