  •  How To Move The Consciousness (6+ / 0-)

    First of all: Great article
     Some of us in the Labor movement have been having this discussion for some time. It would seem the problem is that many Working Class have a negative view of the term. They see it as dirty and somehow beneath them. In some Union halls it is never used as it is associated with being a Communist. (read Marx: On The Trade Unions) Unions are not revolutionary. So workers that are in the best position to understand there relation to capital in America don't understand class. This would explain to some degree why many Union members vote Republican.
     But the question is then how to educate theses workers of there class? Any ideals?
