I feel strongly that Union activist need to learn how we won the victories that got us where we are. That’s why I set up the Voices of Labor web site, and why I set up the Labor History Book club. You would be amazed at how similar things are now as in times in our past. The difference though, is our response to it.
To promote the book club, and to get more people involved in the discussion, I’m having a Raffle for a $10 Amazon gift card for everyone that participates in the book club discussions this month. I’ve set up a Google Groups mailing list (the info is below) where everyone can join in. To ensure we keep spammers out, I need to approve you, but rest assured, no one will be kept out that wants to join. (expect those spammers) I’ll pick one random name at the end of the month and email that person a $10 Amazon gift certificate.
Octobers book, if you did not know, is Hellraiser – Mother Jones: An Historical Novel and we are lucky to have the author Jerry Ash agreeing to join our discussion. We’ll be able to get his thoughts on Mother Jones as well as the historical events surrounding the book.
So Join the mailing list and lets talk Labor History
