Labour Day issue, with articles examining the relentless pressure put on workers to work ever longer hours, at the cost of their health and family life; anti-worker legislation, Zapatista popular education, and the Greek crisis.
Abstract: We mark Labour Day with two articles examining the relentless pressure put on workers to work ever longer hours, at the cost of their health and family life. Another article reviews the equally relentless assault by Canada's Harper government on labour unions and on the rights of working people. Rounding out the labour focus is an article on workplace organizing; films from the Labor Films Database; our website of the week, The International Institute of Social History, and our Topic of the Week - Labour History.
We've also got articles how the role of global warming in driving refugees from their homes, Zapatista popular education, and John Pilger on the Greek crisis.
