American labor posters are widely scattered, difficult to locate, and rarely archived. Cushing and Drescher have pulled together some 250 color images of posters issued by government programs and campaigns, devised by unions as recruiting tools or strike announcements, and generated by grassroots organizations focused on a particular issue or group of workers—they reveal much about the diverse experiences of working people in the United States.
