Organized labor and the housing question: public housing, suburbanization, and urban renewal

Auteur :
PARSON, D.

Description :
This paper examines those public-housing, suburbanization, and urban renewal policies in the USA that have evolved as a consequence of intraclass struggle. It is argued that the powerful constituency of organized labor was able, in 1950's, to impose suburbanization as a valid answer to the housing question of the unions, while subsuming the housing demands, needs, and wants of less-powerful women and blacks. By the 1960's, the growing movements of women and blacks were able to challenge the dominance of the labor-liberal coalition and to successfully oppose the union-advocated policies of urban renewal and suburbanization.
