JONATHAN ROSENBLUM at Capitol Hill Library

 

Co-presented with THE SEATTLE PUBLIC LIBRARY.

Seattle labor organizer Jonathan Rosenblum discusses his timely, informative book on one of the galvanizing domestic issues of recent years - income disparity - with his book, Beyond $15: Immigrant Workers, Faith Activists, and the Revival of the Labor Movement (Beacon).

“Readers interested in labor activism, history, economics, industrial relations, or immigration studies will find this book to be compelling and captivating, as Rosenblum captures the story of this unifying, important, and successful fight for economic equity.” —Booklist.  

“A compelling and vital read for any social justice activist. In the vivid detail of a committed participant in the struggle, Rosenblum tells how ordinary airport workers took on the corporate powers and both Democratic and Republican Party elites and won.” —Kshama Sawant.

Free admission.
