    What Is AFL-CIO’s Vision of a Better Life For Working People and Their Families? LaborTalk By Harry Kelber
    What should be clear by now is that business unionism doesn't work. If we expect to recruit millions of workers, we have to broaden our vision and our message to include issues where workers feel helpless and would welcome our assistance.

    In the 1930s, organized labor was recognized as "champion of the working class." We have some way to go to merit that image, but we should strive for it.
