Scholars, journalists, labor leaders and labor activists as well as community-based activists benefit greatly from the entire range of the humanities and social sciences that New Labor Forum covers. But don’t take our word for it. Here are just a few of the endorsements we have received from Cornel West, Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, and others:

New Labor Forum is one of the most thoughtful and provocative publications on workers, organized labor, and the struggle for social justice. I urge anyone concerned about these issues to subscribe today.”
Cornel West,
Princeton University

“I am encouraged by the emergence of New Labor Forum. Our nation is in need of a revitalized labor movement, drawing on the rich history of workers’ struggles. A journal that encourages bold new ideas about the role of labor in society is a valuable spur to labor organizing and to the larger challenge of transforming our society.”
Howard Zinn

A strong labor movement is crucial to a democratic society. New Labor Forum hosts the discussion, debate, new ideas and even the poetry essential to a revitalized labor movement.”
Katrina vanden Heuvel,
Editor and Publisher of The Nation

“The work of New Labor Forum is vitally important to the cause of organized labor. It provides an invaluable space for uninhibited and well-informed debate. It is required reading for anyone who is concerned with issues of work and workers.”
Maria Elena Durazo,
L.A. County Federation of Labor

The unremitting attack against unions since World War II has been an assault against the threat of democracy, and it must be beaten back if there are to be prospects for a more just and free society. New Labor Forum is in the forefront of these efforts, which are of vital importance.”
Noam Chomsky, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

“This is a critical time, as we work for a future that includes a meaningful role for working Americans and their organizations in the midst of a nearly unified management effort to eliminate collective bargaining. The commitment of New Labor Forum to thoughtful debate, the exploration of new approaches, and analysis based on information rather than rhetoric is vital to our efforts.”
Larry Cohen, Communications Workers of America

New Labor Forum is a rarity – a journal that frankly addresses a critical social issue in a language accessible to those inside and outside the academy. It is required reading for anyone who believes that the future of political and social democracy rests in a large measure on the revitalization of the labor movement.”
Eric Foner,
Columbia University
