Any working-class or labor-related websites to recommend? I'm partial to the I.W.W. and Catholic Worker Movement ones.

I was floored last year when I learned that the IWW is still in existence and even more amazingly, it is based just down the road from me in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The Southern Poverty Law Center website is good for the occasional labor story. Both feature stories this morning were on labor abuses. Why is it that George W. Bush just can't understand that LEGAL immigrants have legal rights? He would have a lot more support from his party if he could just understand that.

The AFL-CIO has a nice site as does the United Steelworkers.

The Center for Working Class Studies in Youngstown, Ohio has a website. There's some good stuff there....

I recommend the websites of some of the various unions: UNITE!-HERE and SEIU are two very good ones. I agree that the AFL-CIO website is good, but so is the breakaway organization's: change to win. They actually have a very amusing application that they designed for Facebook users called Smack the CEO. You can see there what various CEOs make around the country and compare it to you and your friends combined earnings.

There are also some very good websites on sweatshops and outsourcing.

Working America ( http://www.workingamerica.org/ ) has a fine Web site. They are affiliated with the AFL-CIO, but their site is targeted more at workers who do not belong to a union.
