This is a web based course offered through the OnCourse System:
This introductory course examines the many facets of Labor Studies.
We will learn how unions function and the contributions they have
made to the American landscape. The course will provide an overview
of the U.S. labor movement's triumphs and tragedies throughout
history, as well as the struggles working people face today.
Finally, we will examine a contemporary labor struggle as a vehicle
to explore changing labor-movement relations, the U.S. government's
role, and internal struggles within the labor movement itself.
