Against Labor

Peter Rachleff

University of Illinois Press

Peter Rachleff considers the meaning of the essays in respect to the continuing growth of employer organizing, including recent employer campaigns to further weaken—even eliminate altogether—organized labor. Despite much effort by pundits who suggest that the “new economy” and globalization decenters employer activism in the United States, one has only to look to the national, state, and local activism inhering in the American Legislative Exchange Commission to recognize how much employer activism remains central. The question to be answered is whether forces from below will develop a counterstrategy that might contest the power of employer activism in the way that workers did in earlier periods.
