What Did You Learn at Work Today? The Forbidden Lessons of Labor Education is written for everyone who works. How do workers make a bad job into a good job? Where do they get the power to do their jobs right? These lessons must be learned, but not the way we learn at school, where people study alone and succeed or fail as individuals. The lessons of labor education are learned collectively, through practice and discussion. How should we respond to a crisis? How do we recognize and define the enemy? How do we pass on what we've learned to the new generation? How do we use a network to solve a problem? This book, by experienced labor educator Helena Worthen, explains how to capture and preserve what workers learn at work and use it to build power. Chapters include case studies of teachers, engineers, healthcare workers, construction workers and garment factory workers. No previous knowledge of the labor movement required; it begins with the question, "Can they do that?" 276 pages paperback
