Max Alvarez-The Work of Living and Revisiting Joy Silk – can the NLRB Make It Easier to Organize?

Max Alvarez of the Real News has a new book, The Work of Living. In it, he dives deep into the lives of essential workers and how they survived being essential. He’ll be here this week on the Heartland Labor Forum. Then, in 1969, an NLRB lawyer’s testimony undid 20 years’ of labor-friendly law on card check and union recognition.
