Format: Paperback
This book provides evidence that worker centers are effective in organizing new migrant workers and may provide an alternative to conventional union collective bargaining. They are not a replacement, but the authors argue that they complement the process by providing another mechanism for labor organizing. The editors provide excellent analysis and contributions on worker centers as necessary in defending the most vulnerable workers. I liked the section on ROC-NY and the case studies on a range of worker enters representing people in a range of industries. The editors supplement this work with essays on the benefits new migrants to the U.S. provide through remittances and economic development.

A comprehensive account of NYC labor migration and resistance to employer exploitation.

I've been driven to take action. I will not remain complacent.Wow, what an eye opener.This book and author tell it like it is, no sugarcoating what hell was like, is like, but won't be like much longer for immigrants. Excuse me, not just immigrants, minorities are apart of this struggle.
