Jeremy Brecher has written fifteen books on labor and social movements. His best seller, Strike, originally written in 1972, was just updated for its 50th anniversary. We’ll interview him this week on the Heartland Labor Forum. Find out about mass strikes in the US from the Great Railroad Strike of 1877 to recent strikes of teachers and fast food workers, and learn what was left out of your history class and why it’s important. Tune in Thursday at 6pm, rebroadcast Friday at 5am.
