Secret History of the Free Market

This looks like it will be an interesting book/film. One thought that comes to mind is if the labor movement was also the product of a shock. I believe there is a Richard Freeman paper that touches upon that.

Old Labor TV Commercials

You're not likely to see commercials like these anytime soon.

This one here is a 1974 commercial advertising the Equal Pay Act and get this...urging people to contact the Department of Labor. This is when the DOL did more than just go after labor unions.

This one was a commercial advertising the labor union AFSCME showing all the types of workers they represent. Someone overdubbed the commercial making it a real treat.
