In a lot of the talk about attacks on labor, the focus has been on electoral politics and cash. Defunding unions will defund the Democratic party and progressive candidates who might fight for working folks. But Jane McAlevey made the point in a recent issue of The Nation that doing away with unions does away with one of the only forms of popular education we have.
