Working People


Mar 7, 2019

In this BONUS EPISODE, as part of our multi-episode series on the GM Layoffs, we talk with writer, activist, and intellectual Sam Gindin. We talk about the history of the auto worker unions in Canada, and we talk about how the GM layoffs fit into the larger picture of the ongoing war between labor and capital, between workers and the ruling class. We also talk about what this all means for the future of the labor movement, and about how we are experiencing one of those special, terrifying, but vital moments in history--a moment when there is real, raw, but fleeting potential to break our collective future away from the predestined path of eventual destruction.
