I know that Andy Stern has some good ideas, and that labor needs to be realistic in the age of globalization, but I didn't find this book to be inspiring, and that's what one looks for in a book about organized labor. Maybe I'm too idealistic, but I just happen to feel like labor has already compromised enough. The fact remains that the rich are benefiting handsomely in this economy, and the poor aren't even breaking even. Real wages are declining, and Stern keeps looking to compromise. Some relationship (like the one between management and labor) are bad for a reason. ( )
