“Socialism has no place in the hearts of those who would secure the fight for freedom and preserve democracy.” — Samuel Gompers, 1918

For decades, Marxism within the union movement stayed somewhat underground. However, since the end of the pandemic, Marxism in unions has become more mainstream with organizations like the Democratic Socialists of America and the Communist Party USA helping unions like the Amazon Labor Union, Starbucks Workers United, and even the United Auto Workers.

In this episode of Labor Relations Radio, Michael Watson, Research Director for the Capital Research Center and Managing Editor of InfluenceWatch.org, joins host Peter List to discuss the history of Marxism in unions—from the early 1900s to the Cold War—as well as the reemergence in the late 90s to today.
