Movie Series: “Who Is The International Working Class Today?”

February 21, 2021

There are many discussions today about the nature of the working class and their capacity to fight for their own interests. Usually, we look at history to learn about the workers' movement, but what potential exists in the modern international working class? What does a modern workers’ struggle really look like? What recent examples are there of workers organizing against the conditions they face and exerting their power? Join us in this movie series as we explore these questions by looking at workers' struggles that happened in our lifetime.

Wisconsin Rising 

Wisconsin Rising shows the social power that workers have when they hit the streets together. Wisconsin was a testing ground for the nation in 2011 as big money attempted to undo basic workers’ rights when newly-elected Republican Governor Scott Walker suddenly stripped collective bargaining power from the state’s public employees.

Thousands of workers poured into the States capitol, even occupying the building, showing workers collective force. But, only to have their energy taken out of their hands and channeled into electoral efforts recalling the Governor with more promises from the Democrats. This movie shows workers' potential and also political pitfalls we must avoid.
