Summary
  • "In the mid-1930s, as in recent times, the excesses of U.S. capitalism sent the American economy and its workers into a tailspin. Workers in that era responded by organizing massively and negotiating tenaciously, helped mightily by the Catholic social-action movement. This group of priests and laypeople, blending strong spirituality and a passion for worker justice, helped multitudes of workers claim their rights and exercise their responsibilities. Can workers today find inspiration in this movement as they seek to regain organized labor's representation of one third of the American workforce? The author of "Go to the Worker" believes that they can, and tells here the movement's story in hopes that you will come to believe that too"--P. [4] of cover
