Workplace Struggles are Political, Part 2. Continuing last week's conversation with Marianne Garneau, Joe and Marianne pay closer attention in this half to the nuts and bolts of organizing for power on the job as an important perspective on what power even is, and how workers are led astray by bosses, capitalist social conditioning, and even unions sometimes.
