Well the Holiday season is upon us, and whatever your belief system may be, chances are you are celebrating the holidays in some fashion and are buying gifts for family and friends. Here at Labor Express Radio we have some suggestions for gifts that will inject some class consciousness into your holiday. On today’s and next week’s program will be focusing on recently published books about labor struggles and working class culture.

Peter Pero is a historian and a member of the Italian-American Labor Council. He is also the author of the recently released book – Chicago Italians at Work – a photobook from Arcadia publishing that looks at the contributions of Italian immigrant workers to the U.S. economy, life and the history of the labor movement and left wing politics. On today’s program will air an interview with Peter about his book.
