Mehring Books is pleased to announce that the SEP pamphlet The Political Significance of the US Oil Workers’ Strike is now available for online purchase. This pamphlet is vital reading to gain a deeper understanding of this significant movement of the working class in the heart of world capitalism.
The development of the US oil refinery strike, after decades in which the unions have attempted to suppress the class struggle, is a symptom of the immense social tensions in the United States. It reflects the deep resentment felt by working people over declining living standards under conditions where the stock market and corporate profits are at record levels.
