Joe Clement continues their conversation with Marianne Garneau, an organizer and educator with the Industrial Workers of the World, and publisher of the online worker journal Organizing.Work about the politics of the Big Strike and the retreat from direct action and organizing for power on the job. They consider the ever present labor realities of speed ups and doing more with less, how an ounce of shutting down the workplace is worth a pound of public support, and what control over work looks like when it’s not just withdrawal of labor.

Here is part 3.

In the end we hear the late labor troubadour Anne Feeney's rendition of the classic IWW song "Dump The Bosses Off Your Back".
