Labor in the U.S. is suffering from a 30-year decline. Wages as a share of the economy are at historic lows, unemployment remains stuck close to record highs. This weakness stems directly from the fact that labor has never been more divided – between union and non-union, immigrant and native-born, young and old, North and South, private sector and public sector; by race, language, creed, color, education, and industry. As militants in the labor movement, we reflect this unevenness of class development in the different forms of organization we take on – but this is no excuse for disunity!
