Abstract:

A 2-part history of the labor movement in California from the 1860's to the present day. This second segment examines the DiGiorgio strike of 1947-50, the struggle for the Fair Employment Practices Law and the threat of the Right To Work campaign of 1958, the expansion of the labor-civil rights connection in the 1960's, the continued struggle of the California's farm labor movement with the advent of Cesar Chavez and the United Farm Workers . The PATCO strike of air traffic controllers marked the end of the post-WWII social compact between labor and capital. A new corporate regime replaces full-time union jobs with part-time, temporary, disposable employment, as millions sink into unemployment and underemployment. In response, a new organizing mood emerges among California working people grappling with the effects of the global economy.
