The Bernard Kleiman Lecture: Organizing Against the Odds: 1919 and Today

Sunday, September 29 @ 2:00 pm

Free

Guest Speaker: Ed Yankovich, VP Emeritus, United Mine Workers of America, District 2.

 Does a hundred years make a difference in workers’ rights and equity? There are lots of similarities. In 1919 and the 1920’s, there wasn’t 100% support for unions. Racism and anti-immigrant sentiment kept workers separate then and divide workers today. Unions represent the struggle of workers against capital. We are the conscience of capitalism.
