9781466337558: It's Never Been Easy: Essays on Modern Labor

The 60 short essays included here cover a variety of labor issues—labor politics, labor history, class warfare, Walmart’s employee relations, school teachers, Hollywood’s labor unions, Latin American labor issues, as well as some vivid, firsthand accounts of actual working people. “The author has a fiercely radical and original voice, one that will reach both the general reader and the 'labor wonk'. He brings people in the work place—their pleasures and their problems—vividly to life. His prose is quirky, clear and pungent. You cannot walk away from it.” — Clancy Sigal, WGA screenwriter (Frida, In Love and War)

About the Author:

David Macaray is a playwright, writer, and former union representative with Local 672 of the AWPPW (Association of Western Pulp & Paper Workers). He served nine terms as president, delegate and chief contract negotiator for the Local, as well as editor of the union newspaper. David has had a dozen plays produced at small theaters in Los Angeles, Hollywood and Orange County ("Borneo Bob," "Larva Boy," "No Salesman Will Call," et al), and has written more than 150 articles on the subjects of labor, politics, travel, baseball, and entertainment, the first of which appeared in a Punjabi newspaper while Macaray was a Peace Corps volunteer in India. He is married, with a grown daughter, and lives in Rowland Heights, California, a suburb of Los Angeles.
