Life and Labor in the New New South

University Press of Florida

Political, economic, and demographic changes have transformed the South in the period since 1950, especially over the past thirty years. Deindustrialization, the rise of the service sector, demographic changes, and southern-led innovations in the conduct of labor relations have combined to reinforce the South's traditional resistance to organized labor and to create widely emulated patterns of industrial relations.

Keywords:   South, Hispanics, African Americans, deindustrialization, service sector employment, Walmart, Democratic party, Unions
