U.S. labor and working people are in trouble. The issues of deregulation, privatization and technology with mobile platforms have made millions of workers temporary with no real future in our country. This presentation will look at how labor ended up in this crisis and the growing strike wave and anger among working people in the United States. It will also look at the future of labor in the U.S. and globally.
