Global Capitalism: September 2016 Monthly Economic Update

 Global Capitalism, Monthly Economic Update:

"Labor Day: The Condition of the Working Class & Labor's Strategy"

Co-sponsored by Democracy at Work, Left Forum & Judson Memorial Church
These programs begin with 30 minutes of short updates on important economic events of the last month, then Prof. Wolff analyzes several major economic issues. For the month of September, these issues will include: 
1.  Wages and working conditions of US workers today;
2.  Automation, outsourcing & immigration;
3.  Organized labor's strategy and an alternative.
Our goal: To develop all participants’ understanding and ability to explain current economic events and trends to others. We open the floor to questions and comments when time permits.

    Dear Mr. Wolff, my compliments and sincerely admiration for your work and the way you’re doing it. I am following you from the Netherlands and use your work for making friends aware that finally in the US are people like us. It’s just wonderful to see that ‘gods own country’ is developing slowly but steady in a good direction. That will take time but we are with you and support you if we can. thank you!

    I’m sure the devil is in the details, but it seems a little odd that the French unions are so very powerful because they are required to represent all workers in the country whether they are union members or not whereas the Taft Hartley Act here in the United States has crippled unions by forcing them to represent all workers at a site whether they are union members or not.
