That’s Cas Mudde (KAS MUDA), a political scientist from the University of Georgia.
“That’s why Trade Unions at universities are important but of course universities are among the most privileged. Right and so you have to get to that level of people who are overall skeptical about old school type of mobilization which on top of that seed--is kind of mobilization as something for kind of rigid structures whereas they are going to work in an economy where they jump from one job to another.”

In today’s labor history, on this date in 1931, 60,000 unemployed workers rallied at a Pittsburgh stadium.
Today’s labor quote is from “Yablonski Murder,” by Hazel Dickens.
United Mine Workers reformer Joseph "Jock" Yablonski, his wife and daughter were murdered on this date in 1969 by hitmen hired by union president Tony Boyle. Boyle was convicted of the crime and eventually died in prison.
Well it's cold blooded murder friends, I'm talking about
Now who's gonna stand up and who's gonna fight?
You better clean up that union, put it on solid ground
Get rid of that dirty trash, that keeps a working man down
