How to combat the worldwide offensive of capitalism against the rights and conditions of the working class? This is a big issue facing the trade unions today. So also is the absence of a distinct political voice for working-class people as former ‘workers’ parties have abandoned a working-class and socialist perspective, like New Labour in Britain.
