Event Type Speaker
Organizer/AuthorModern Times Bookstore
Mathew, a professor at Rider University and longstanding organizer of the New York Taxi Workers Alliance, draws extensively on interactions with taxi drivers to tell the story of an industry that has come to typify the ruthless exploitation of modern business. Taxi! engages the political task of immigrant labor organizing with postcolonial and Marxist theory to produce a rich commentary on immigration, gender, race, multiculturalism and the neo-liberal political economy, as well as the imaginaries that fuel global cities like New York. Set in New York, Mathew's account will undoubtedly resonate for anyone engaged in organizing for immigrant rights.
