      In this incisive reinterpretation of the history of the American labor movement, Howard Kimeldorf challenges received thinking about rank-and-file workers and the character of their unions. Battling for American Labor answers the baffling question of how, while mounting some of the most aggressive challenges to employing classes anywhere in the world, organized labor in the United .   Workers, Labor Unions, and the American Left in the 20th Century: Federal Records (Module 31) This module consists of a wide range of collections documenting the American workers and labor unions in the 20th century, with a special emphasis on the interaction between workers and the U.S. federal : Nuria Sauri.

      Union membership has fallen from 23% of American workers in to % in —and to only % in the private sector. As a result, unions’ diminished powers of collective bargaining are no longer able to bolster wages, assure benefits like health insurance, and improve training and working conditions to the extent they once did.   The s and s saw a growing gap in the wages paid to skilled and unskilled workers. While American workers at the end of the s thus could look back on a decade of growing prosperity born of strong economic growth and low unemployment, many felt uncertain about what the future would : Mike Moffatt.

    This book was first published in The enactment of the Wagner National Labor Relations Act in gave organized labor what it has regarded ever since as one of its greatest assets: a legislative guarantee of the right of American workers to organize and bargain collectively. Yet while the Wagner Act's guarantees remain substantially unaltered, organized labor in America today is in decline. American society has grown dramatically more unequal over the past quarter century. The economic gains of American workers after World War II have slowly been eroded—in part because organized labor has gone from encompassing one-third of the private sector workers to less than one-tenth.
