Philip Dray presents a history of organized labor in America. The author recalls the first unions started in the textile mills of Lowell, Massachusetts, the rise of organized labor, and the role unions played in changing the political and social landscape of the 20th century, from improvements in working conditions to the establishment of the eight-hour workday. Mr. Dray also examines the reasons for the diminished size of union membership today. Philip Dray discussed his book at the Tenement Museum in New York City. close
