Stephen Lerner

Stephen Lerner is an American labor and community organizer. He has organized janitors, farm workers, garment workers, and other low-wage workers into unions.

Lerner is a critic of Wall Street bankers and the increased financialization of the U.S. economy. He argues that the power of investments banks and other financial entities have led to income inequality and served as the driving force behind the creation of overwhelming debt obligations seen at the state and local level. The result, Lerner says, is a consolidation of economic and political power in the hands of a small number of banking and finance executives. Lerner advocates the use of non-violent civil disobedience as a tactic to challenge the influence of Wall Street and corporations.

Lerner is a contributor on national television and radio programs and has published articles on the 21st-century labor movement. Provided by Wikipedia
