As American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) President Gerald W. McEntee and Secretary-Treasurer Lee Saunders show, efforts to crush whats left of the working middle class and the American Dream are supported by those willing to stop at nothing to enshrine profits for the few at the expense of the many.

But these forces vastly underestimate the power of Americans--union and non-union alike--united for economic justice and a vibrant democracy.In fact, AFSCMEs leaders argue that the response to the unprecedented attacks on the rights of workers amid growing income inequality in the United States has triggered something extraordinary: the Main Street Moment. From Washington to Wisconsin, Americans are fighting back against the crony capitalists trying to undo a century of hard-won victories for workers.

These Americans know that the best bulwark against economic calamity is organized labor. Unions brought you the weekend and the forty-hour work week- unions created the middle class. And now unions must save America from those who would sacrifice democracy for the sake of profit.The Main Street Moment is the definitive manifesto for progressives and working people who know that America can only be transformed if we all stand united.
