000901 Frances Fox Piven - Labor in a Globalised Economy

The pundits say globalisation is the wave of the future. If you're against it, says Tom Friedman of the New York Times, then you are part of a "Noah's ark of flat earth advocates." Workers are the cogs in the global economy. Yet, when it comes to the media, labor is an afterthought. Programs like Moneyline and Marketplace and whole sections of newspapers are devoted to business. Election campaigns are when workers' concerns are discussed. As soon as they are over, politicians return to their traditional role of keeping labor on a tight leash.

Frances Fox Piven is a leading activist scholar. She is Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Sociology at CUNY. She is co-author with Richard Cloward of numerous award-winning books including, Regulating the Poor and The Breaking of the American Social Compact.
