This short, punchy, yet sharply analytic book, written by USAS activists and an expert journalist, provides a record of a new mass campaign and a tool for the realization of its goals

United Students Against Sweatshops heads a wave of anti-sweatshop organizing that has reached over two hundred American college campuses in the past four years. From the northeast to the southwest, at public and private, large and small universities, their campaigns have wreaked havoc on the corporate campus and ruffled multinational companies whose profits depend on young consumers; they have also led to a more broadly based engagement with issues of social justice and provide a potential model for transnational student/worker solidarity.


  • An inspiring story of how students are making history today.

    Tom Hayden
  • As vividly as any documentary film, Liza Featherstone captures the gusto and political savvy of a student movement that has made its impact in every corner of the global economy. Nor does this indispensable book pull any punches; its bold commentary will hit home where it needs to be heard.

    Andrew Ross
  • Everybody wants to have a living wage. Everybody wants to be able to take care fo themselves and their family. Everybody wants to retire and feel good, enjoy life. Breathe. Live. Eat.
