Organizing the South is so very, very hard. I’ve discussed this many times here over the years, both in the labor history series and in discussing contemporary events. And yet, without organizing the South, the labor movement will never come out of its present doldrums. It’s important to highlight the workers who are struggling to bring unions to the region in spite of the odds. That’s why everyone here should read this Jacobin interview with North Carolina hospital workers attempting to unionize their Asheville workplace. It’s not really something that works in terms of excerpts. But we need to listen to these workers and give them what publicity and support we can.
