    Fighting Back and Winning

    This book provides a comprehensive analysis of migrant worker and immigrant organizing that takes us beyond even the most innovative organizing approaches of unions. The writers provocatively assert that the institutional models of organized labor are just not going to work for most, especially immigrant workers of color. We need a new model and this book provides the groundwork from which we can launch a powerful workers' movement. They bring to life the fact that today's workers have the same desires and aspirations of immigrants throughout U.S. history and are willing to step up if they have collective support from labor councils and community organizations. The readings are complex and eclectic, showing all aspects of life for immigrants struggling for respect and dignity, but mostly a chance to survive under Neoliberal capitalism.

    immigrants left out

    Absolutely the best book on worker centers. I loved it. A great example that workers fight for rights when given the chance!

    worker centers and immigrants

    This is the most comprehensive collection of essays on the success of workers centers in mobilizing migrant workers to advance the writes of working class people of color. The editors see migrant workers as the best hope for expanding worker rights in New York. What is impressive is that they see alternative strategies of all kinds are potentially effective. There is no single model, but many examples of successful organizing. As an organizer, I see this book as a complex examination of the challenges migrant workers. It advances the view that there is no one single model to organizing workers, and that unions and worker centers can work together or autonomously. A must read.
