Chris Rhomberg, an associate professor of sociology at Fordham and recent LERA recruit, had a big media day on Monday, Sept. 10. He had his op-ed, "America Needs More Strikes," published on the CNN website. Click here to read the op-ed. It's a concise recent history of American unionism. (Rhomberg quotes longtime LERA stalwart and Penn State law professor Ellen Dannin.)
