Eli Friedman on the Chinese Labor Movement

program date: 
Mon, 12/24/2012

 Bill Resnick talks with Eli Friedman about the Chinese labor movement. He challenges the idea that they are "stealing our jobs" and in conscious comeptition with American workers. They talk about the strike-waves that the Chinese State refer to as "mass incidents". There is no legal right to strike in China, so every strike is a wild-cat. Eli talks about how the State tries to control workers, through the All China Federation of Trade Unions and other measures. Eli argues that the Chinese labor movement is at the epicenter of global worker unrest and marvelously successful without legal or formal union support.

 Old Mole Joe Clement, and Kathryn Sackinger talk with sociology grad-student and Jacobin Magzine editor Peter Frase, about the idea of an unconditional and universal basic income.
