It might be useful to add that Joe McLaughlin is educated (he has a
degree in economics from one of them fancy east coast colleges,
Georgetown or somewhere), and he is in Texas organizing low-paid,
mostly non-white service workers. He is interesting to talk to, and he
wants to build networks with intellectuals and academics who are
interested in or supportive of the labor movement. I don't think he
will take much of your time or make many demands (he may ask you to
read an SEIU research paper to make sure the economics make sense, or
invite you to talk over coffee... or whatever time you can afford).
I know he would be appreciative of any connections he can make with
academics. He is also on Facebook if you want to contact him there.
