Chris Rhomberg, an associate professor of sociology at Fordham University wrote an article today on CNN.com proclaiming that America would be better off both economically and politically with more strikes.
"During the 1970's, an average of 289 major work stoppages involving 1,000 or more workers occured anually in the United States. By the 1990's, that had fallen to about 25 per year. And in 2009, there were no more than five."
The strike has nearly disappeared from American life and for some that may seem like a good thing. Rhomberg believes that:
"For the sake of our economic and political future, however, America would be better off if we had more strikes."
