Summary:Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the founding of the labor federation, this film combines a look at the past with a look at unions today. There are some exceptional photographs and historic film footage portraying the founding of the AFL, early union leaders, and strikes which played a part in the long struggle for economic and social justice. Interviews with union members today reveal how they feel about their unions and the problems they face today.
