Approval for labor unions and interest in labor organizing are both at historic highs, but there is a persistent gap between that energy and its translation into working people's organizations and power. It is clear now that existing labor law does not help regularize labor-management relations so much as it prevents labor organizing altogether. If working people are going to regain power and voice at the workplace, they need new strategies outside the traditional framework of channeling all organizing through the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). This research looks at different worker empowerment strategies in this vein that have proven track records of success and further potential to build the political power of working people or redistribute social wealth.
