This weekend we sat down for a chat with Steve Meier, a man who socialist in Dubuque call the embodiment of the proletariat. He’s a John Deere worker, UAW member, founder of Dubuque Labor for Bernie, and has worked with the campaigns of Bernie Sanders, Jill Stein, and other local candidates in Iowa. In this chat he tells us about his experience as an industrial worker and union member, the overlaps and differences in industrial versus service work, and the changes radical academics must make in order to have a positive role in the cause of labor and socialism.
