Rebuilding Worker Voice in Today's Economy - Roosevelt Institute
"Workers are increasingly powerless in the 21st century economy. Working people have few rights on the job, corporations and wealthy individuals hold outsized influence in politics and policymaking, economic inequality is vast and deep, and economic mobility is out of reach for most. Most notably, the unionization rate—a key measure of worker voice and worker agency—has dropped rapidly since the early 1980s. These trends all underscore the need for fundamental labor law reform in America. In Rebuilding Worker Voice in Today’s Economy, Kate Andrias and Brishen Rogers argue that labor law reform in the U.S. must be guided by one core principle: It must guarantee all workers a voice in their workplaces, in the broader economy, and in our democracy. Read the two-page summary here. To achieve this principle, the authors propose for key ways to rewrite labor law: Labor law should provide rights to all workers, in all economic sectors. Labor law should protect and promote workplace unionization. Labor law should encourage sectoral-level bargaining. Labor law should protect workers’ fundamental rights to strike, picket, and engage in other collective action. We cannot have an inclusive and just society until workers truly have a voice. Labor law reform alone, however, will not foster economic and political equality, nor can it fully tackle the challenges facing workers in America today. Rebuilding a more just and equal economy and democracy will be a long-term project. Fundamental, structural labor law reform is central to that project."

Wages for Housework | AK Press
"Throughout the 1970s, the Wages for Housework movement developed an analysis of women’s reproductive labor, “housework” broadly conceived, as a primary site for mobilization. Silvia Federici was a cofounder of the movement, working within the New York Wages for Housework Committee from 1972 to 1977. Here Federici draws from her personal archive to present the movement through its original documents: notes on discussion sessions, pamphlets, flyers, essays, songs and speeches. What emerges is a portrait of a living struggle, as relevant in our age of austerity as ever, grappling with the question of what is to be done to put an end to the massive quantities of unwaged labor steadily expanding the wealth of the capitalist class while condemning millions to impoverishment and endless work? “Rosie the Riveter had been sent home until she rose up in the feminist and welfare struggles of the capitalist crisis of the 1970s. Undefeated, Rosie took her new conditions of exploitation—the home—as the basis of the fight against patriarchy, capitalism, and the state. Here are the primary sources of that struggle. Between theory and practice lies the leaflet and the pamphlet... Between good ideas on the page and actual deeds in the street lies the slogan, and here they are: ‘Capitalist work cannot liberate us, only the struggle can.’ ‘Class struggle and feminism are one and the same.’ ‘The family is a colony.’ ‘Our uterus is the wheel that keeps capital moving.’ ‘Heterosexuality is a fundamental condition of house-work.’ ‘Prostitution is socialized housework.’ Nothing bougie here whatsoever.” —Peter Linebaugh "
