The book, "Which Side Are You On?: Trying to be for Labor When it's Flat on its Back," is Tom Geoghegan's story of working with the labor unions in the 1960's and the 1970's. Goeghegan said the current standard of living is flat or falling which wasn't the case when organized labor unions were present in the 50's and 60's. We're all in trouble, all of us, if labor declines, explained Goeghegan.
