The Injuries of Class. No. 505.

Michael D. Yates, in "The Injuries of Class," [Monthly Review 59 (January 2008): 1- 10] writes of the difficulty of workers, dulled by weariness, in regaining their humanity.
He states:
"Politically unions and all working-class organizations must aim to promote a working-class way of thinking about the world and must fight for any and all public programs that empower workers, from national health care to paid vacations and leaves for all to free adult education." (p. 10).
