Rice & Roses #1203 : Labor Looks at the 80s

When the J.P. Stevens Company moved from New England to the Southern United States, part of the reasoning was to avoid the unionization of its workers. However, the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union fought to get those workers into a union and for workers' rights. This program titled "Labor Looks at the 80s," recounts the workers' struggles against J.P. Stevens and some of the details of how and why J.P. Stevens eventually signed a contract with a portion of its workers. Recorded on May 5, 1981.
