Joe talks with Dan Gross, co-author with Staughton Lynd of the book, "Labor Law for the Rank and Filer". They talk about labor law as an overall impediment to the labor movement, but how it can still figure into successful organizing today. They also talk about solidarity unionism and its advantageous differences from business unionism. There is extra content that did not air, but which still needs to be edited before posting.
In addition to his labor law background, Dans been an organizer with the Industrial Workers of the World and helped co-found the Starbucks Workers Union when he was a worker there. He's currently the executive director of Brandworkers International, a nonprofit that trains "workers in social change tools and [facilitates] member-led workplace justice campaigns".
