Our Members Be Unlimited: A Comic about Workers and Their Unions by Sam Wallman
A timely and inspiring work of comics journalism—the history of unions and why we need them (and a first-hand account of working in an Amazon warehouse).
Workers of the world, unite! From comics journalist Sam Wallman comes a thoughtful plunge into the history of unions. Through distinctive art and sharp-eyed reporting, Wallman ushers us into the hidden aisles of 21st-century labor conditions, and shows us recent labor movements and union triumphs—all while framing current conditions against the history of unions and the earliest rallying cries for worker rights.
It’s an entry point for younger generations, and a reminder for workers who have had their livelihood reduced by capitalist pressures. It’s also a primer for those new to the power of collective action.
From an Amazon warehouse in Melbourne (where Sam worked for a year), to Britain and Bangladesh, to Walmart in China and the New York Taxi Workers Alliance strike against the Trump-era refugee ban of 2017, this book is a highly original and visual exploration of the power of unions.
