Anyone who was having trouble choosing sides in this year’s showdown between Wisconsin teachers and those who wanted to take away their rights to collectively bargain should be forced to read this. Dray’s book compellingly illuminates the story of the American labor movement, warts and all, and reminds readers both what first necessitated unions and why we still need them today, even though it may be too late.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
