Art. Labor. This is a visual journey that follows early events and conditions, from the rise of statewide organized labor to the changing demographics of the wartime workforce; from the zenith of the California Labor School to the farm workers' movement; from the disenfranchisement of workers in the service economy to the potent effects of globalization felt at the end of the twentieth century. "This artwork represents an important cultural heritage for California, needed more urgently today than ever before"--Tom Rankin, President, California Labor Federation.
