Wall Street’s War on Workers

Tackling Mass Layoffs Head-On: “Wall Street’s War on Workers” by Les Leopold addresses a critical challenge — the destructive force of mass layoffs.

These layoffs disrupt lives and damage communities, fueled by a culture that prioritizes shareholder wealth over employee well-being.

Unpacking the Why and How: Leopold delves into why healthy corporations opt for layoffs and stock buybacks, and how laws enable this harmful cycle.

It’s a deep dive into financialized capitalism and its impact on American workers and democracy.

A New Perspective on Labor: This book places US labor issues in a larger context, revealing how financial strip-mining affects party politics and worker support.

Leopold challenges misconceptions about working-class progressivism and offers a fact-driven narrative.

Path to Change: Highlighting that mass layoffs aren’t an economic inevitability, Leopold proposes realistic steps to end them, including restructuring corporate pay and banning stock buybacks.

It’s an urgent call for action to dismantle Wall Street’s grip on the economy.
