Authors Gerard McEntee and Lee Saunders, “The Main Street Moment”
14th & V | Langston | May 31,2012 | 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Teaching for Change's Busboys and Poets Bookstore 

welcomes Gerard McEntee and Lee Saunders 
to discuss and sign their new book, The Main Street Moment: Fighting Back to Save the American Dream

 

In the wake of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression and landmark Supreme Court decisions giving corporations license to inject unlimited funds into what were once free and fair elections, corporate-backed politicians are targeting ordinary Americans as never before. As two of the most important figures in American labor, AFSCME President Gerald McEntee and Secretary Treasurer Lee Saunders, show in their gripping new book, The Main Street Moment, efforts to crush what’s left of the middle class and the American dream are being supported by those willing to stop at nothing to enshrine profits for the few at the expense of the many. But, as McEntee and Saunders demonstrate, these forces vastly underestimate the power of workers united for economic justice.
