U.S. Workers in the Late Neoliberal Era
The Pressures, the Changes, the Potential
by Kim Moody

Capitalism in the United States and across the world has gone through a 
series of mind-bending crises, spatial “fixes,” and continuous 
restructurings that have disoriented organized labor in most of the 
developed economies since the beginning of the neoliberal era in the 
late 1970s and early 1980s.

Since then, however, continued problems of profitability and competition 
have altered the structure of U.S. capitalism and the working class in 
ways that could lay the basis for renewed class struggle, as union 
activists, non-union workers, insurgent immigrants, and urban-based 
workers caught in low-wage jobs increasingly come face-to-face with 
deteriorating working and living conditions and with each other in new 
concentrations of labor on the edges of urban America.
