Abstract

Abstract:

The twenty years since 1989 have brought two major developments in worker activism. First, whereas workers were part of the mass uprising in the Tiananmen Movement, there is today hardly any sign of mobilization that transcends class or regional lines. Second, a long-term decline in worker power at the point of production is going on even as workers gain more power (at least on paper) outside the workplace. New labor laws have broadened workers' rights and engendered mobilization outside official limits, even as legal and bureaucratic procedures have also atomized and depoliticized labor activism.
