Whose Streets: The History and Future of Labor Activism
with
Sarah Jaffe, an independent journalist covering labor, economic justice, social movements, politics, gender, and pop culture. She is the co-host, with Michelle Chen, of Dissent magazines Belabored podcast, as well as an editorial board member at Dissent and a columnist at New Labor Forum. Necessary Trouble:
Americans in Revolt is her first book. She was one of the first reporters to cover Occupy Wall Street and the Fight for $15
and
Mark Brenner, Director of Labor Notes, a media and organizing project that has been the voice of union activists who want to put the movement back in the labor movement since 1979. Labor Notes also works with local unions & community groups to organize Troublemakers Schools, bringing labor activists together for a day of workshops on grassroots
unionism and skills that officers and rank and filers need.

Sarah Jaffe covers the class war one battle at a time. She has criss-crossed the country, asking people what they were angry about, and what they were doing to take power back. She penetrates the heart of these movements, explaining what has made ordinary Americans become activists. She attended a people's assembly in a church gymnasium in Ferguson, Missouri; walked a picket line at an Atlanta Burger King; rode a bus from New York to Ohio with student organizers; and went door-to-door in Queens days after Hurricane Sandy. From the successful fight for a 15 minimum wage in Seattle and New York
to the halting of Shell's Arctic drilling program, Americans are discovering the effectiveness of making good, necessary trouble. Sarah Jaffe captures the essence of the class struggle, tells the stories of the movers and shakers in labor and community activities to empower the people towards building a just, egalitarian, peaceful society.

Mark Brenner knows that we dont need a crystal ball to figure out what a Trump presidency has in store for labor: national right-to-work legislation, outsourcing and privatizing more public services, large-scale deportations, a ban on prevailing-wage laws & this is
