    I continue to maintain that the best way to come to the aid of our brothers and sisters in economic need (and the only way potentially strong enough to counter the tyrannies of runaway capitalism) is to breathe new life into the labor movement, which now makes up only seven percent of the U.S. workforce just as it did right after the Great Depression–before the New Deal, aided by worker-justice advocates from the Catholic social-action movement and from many other sources, helped workers to organize and to engage in more-effective collective bargaining. Those folks and their successors are the real job creators.

    • William Bole says

      The history is hard to refute. The workers organized–and they not only bargained but changed the politics as well.
