Abstract:     
Why Not a General Strike? proposes a - no surprise! - general strike, with the exception of essential services, for the Labor Day Weekend of 2006. With the waves of bankruptcies in the airline industry now spreading to the auto industry, and with the fracture of the AFL-CIO, workers are placed into increasingly desperate positions. Perhaps it is time for a weekend of deliberation about the future of jobs and about the lack of job and retirement and insurance security. The earlier history of the United States, and contemporary experiences in many other countries, demonstrate the intriguing viability of the general strike.
