Clawson: How Does Labor Go on the Offensive?

Clawson: How Does Labor Go on the Offensive?

As we get ready for the 2013 AFL-CIO Convention in September, we’re asking people like you what we can do together to make a better future for working people and to build a bigger and stronger labor movement. Daily Kos labor editor Laura Clawson gets the discussion going on the just-launched AFL-CIO 2013 Convention website with this question:

The sustained war on workers from the right has left unions trying to prevent rights from being weakened rather than setting the agenda. Where are the opportunities to play some offense?

Go to our discussion page and let us know what you think.

Be sure to check back at 1 p.m. EDT Wednesday, May 8, when Clawson will be live online hosting a real-time discussion.

Visit and join the conversation about the future of work.
