‘Downsized’: The Song

Posted on January 30, 2012 | in Labor News | by
 

From Union Communications Services:

Joe Glazer, known by many as labor’s troubadour, had for more than 50 years used his voice and guitar to rally supporters to the union cause, including for this timely tune, “Downsized.”

Before his death in 2006, he had performed in a hundred union halls, on dozens of picket lines and at scores of political and protest rallies and union conventions.  He appeared in nearly every state in the union and in 60 countries around the world and recorded more than 25 LP albums, cassettes and CDs of labor and political music.

You can purchase songs by Glazer and other labor music from the non-profit, labor-supported Labor Heritage Foundation.
