“No Shortcuts” Reading Group
Las Vegas DSA’s Labor Committee has started a reading group to discuss Jane McAlevey’s book ”No Shortcuts: Organizing for Power in the New Gilded Age.” The book goes over how and why unions need to focus on building “actual power” through organizing rather than “pretend power” through advocacy and mobilizing. This week we will be discussing Chapter 1.
About LVDSA's Labor Committee
There is no strong socialist movement without a militant and powerful labor movement. One cannot overstate the importance of collective organizing for worker power in the maintenance of a democratic society. This organizing is also critical to linking DSA members effectively to the struggles of the working class. Nevada is a right-to-work state, so the obstacles to labor unions and their fight for workers are many; thus LVDSA’s Labor committee pledges support and solidarity with the labor movement in the fight for dignity, respect, job security, and democracy in the workplaces of Las Vegas.
