In this Week’s Working-Class Perspectives – Envisioning a 21st-Century Worker-Centered Social Compact

The multiple crises of the last few years make clear that the U.S. — and much of the world — is in a period of struggle but also of transformation. In times like these, Joseph A. McCartin argues in Working-Class Perspectives this week, we need a compelling and plausible vision for a more just society, one that will provide a rallying call for working-class organizing and activism. Without it, McCartin writes, the powerless stand little chance before the forces of entrenched power. 

In early June, the Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor, which McCartin leads, will bring together people from unions, think tanks, faith communities, academia, and advocacy organizations to develop that vision.
