Organizer/AuthorLabor Creates All Wealth
Every July day has Laborfest events, some of which are missing from the red letter listings. This "al fresco" textbook for all of us will teach the importance of a general strike which we need to put an end to the profit motive that is the cause of the budget "crisis" and war. On July 16 in Oakland, The Working Group celebrates its 20th Anniversary of labor TV programs.
