Citizen Action/Illinois Celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington

After Wisconsin, Whither Labor?

Date: 
07/02/2012

 

by John D. Cameron

In the wake its the failure to recall Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker last month, numerous pundits have once again declared that the American labor movement is doomed.  The line goes that organized labor has lost its political clout and its declining membership in the private sector means it is headed for the dustbin of history.

Yet, as Mark Twain would have said, the rumors of labor’s death are greatly exaggerated.
