"A comprehensive, readable introduction to the history, structure, functioning, and yes, the problems of U. S. unions. For labor and political activists just coming on the scene or veterans looking for that missing overview, this is the best place to start."
--Kim Moody, author of Workers in a Lean World
With historical sidebars ranging from the Industrial Workers of the World to Cesar Chavez and a generous sprinkling of photos and cartoons, Why Unions Matter is a clear and simple introduction to the labor movement's purpose and promise.
