UMass Boston of all places should have a vibrant Labor Studies program. If its numbers are down, that is an institutional failing, not the Program's.

The labor movement has indeed been the one national organization for the working class. Degree programs like this are essential to have future labor leaders and to spread the history of the movement which regularly gets completely ignored in history books, etc.

I graduated U/Mass through this program in 2003. No way should it be eliminated!

Private schools, such as Cornell, Harvard, etc., manage to keep their labor programs going. In NY Cornell has "partnered" with The Murphy Institute, City University of New York (CUNY) but its more like a non-hostile takeover for Cornell and a survival strategy for CUNY. Labor unions need to step up and in.

The Haves are working non-stop to keep the Have-Nots from bettering their lives.
Education is the key to everything in life. Without education there is little to no chance of achieving more. Without education workers are easy targets for the lies, omissions and half-truths perpetuated by the Corporations and their paid lackeys.
If America is to regain it's role as a leader in advancing science, technology and manufacturing the workforce must be capable of understanding the issues.

The elimination of the labor movement and the elimination of labor studies programs are an attack on all of us.

What about the techs that you want to cheat out of a job of installing and maintaining the automated check out lanes. But I guess your furry only counts for the uneducated 99%ers that want thing handed to them rather than working for something better.
