Your Call: Who was Mother Jones and what did she do for the labor movement?
On September 1st edition of Your Call, on Labor Day, we’ll have a conversation with Simon Cordery, author of “Mother Jones: Raising Cain and Consciousness.” In 1902, she was called the most dangerous woman in America for her effective and creative labor organizing. How did she organize workers in early 20th century? And want can what can we learn from her activism? It’s Your Call, with me Rose Aguilar.
