ABSTRACT
Labor in 21st Century America
Labor in the USA is facing many challenges - deindustrialization, the rise of precarious work, anti-unionization drives, labor-unfriendly government at the federal and state level, growing disparities of wealth, and many others.  In this talk I will provide a general overview of some of these challenges facing US workers, as well as explore some of the strategies which may serve to improve workers' situations.
