10/27 Jane McAlevey: No Shortcuts: Organizing for Power in the New Gilded Age

October 27, 2016

Jane McAlevey author of No Shortcuts: Organizing for Power in the New Gilded Age, explains the distinction between organizing and mobilizing. Why organizing is reflective and face to face. Mobilizing after self-discovery. Why the Left needs to get back to back to basics organizing. The American South and organizing factory workers today. Organizing in the suburbs. Thinking strategically and understanding the working Americans are really hurting. Understanding the power of workers. What the Chicago Teachers strike got right. Constructing solidarity in post-industrial cities. What are “super majority” strikes and what are real strikes? And why narrative change isn’t power.

On The Fun Half: Gary Johnson has a meltdown. Jennifer Rubin fails badly on with Bill O’Reilly. Tomi Lahren gets called out for enabling the alt-right.
