At Home and Abroad, the Labor Movement Comes Roaring Back


At Home and Abroad, the Labor Movement Comes Roaring Back

Annelise Orleck

On April 15, 2015, low-wage workers across the U.S. and around the world once again waged a flash strike intended to capture the attention of employers and policy-makers who control their wages. Protesters didn’t spend their limited monies to ride buses, trains or planes to Washington, D.C. where their actions might or might not have attracted much media attention. Instead, they took to the streets where they live and labor — in 200 U.S. cities and across the United Kingdom, Brazil, India, Italy, Bangladesh, Japan, and 30 other countries.


the labor movement has come roaring back

There’s a big difference between “showing signs of life” and “come roaring back.”



A labor movement that does not reject the D and R parties is doomed.

The movement’s energy should be directed toward the support and building of the Green Party.


They should build their own party and call it theWorkers Party


We need only ONE party of the people.

The Greens already have ballot access in many states.

It would take a new Workers Party 8 years or more to equal the Green’s ballot access, and then we would have two parties of the people that would split the vote and elect no one.

All progressive and radical parties should unify in a single party that might start winning elections.


The labor movement needs to make itself aware of TISA- Please don’t ignore this forced globalization.

Its goal is to lower wages.
