it was amazing
bookshelves: academic, history, nonfiction

Fantastic and comprehensive history of organized labor in America. Covers the labor movement from it's inception in 18th century pre-Revolutionary America up through the most recent struggles for undocumented immigrants to receive some measure of protection from exploitation.

Along the way you meet an interesting cast of characters who make the history of the American Labor Movement so fascinating.

Highly recommended!
