June 21, 1937, Toronto). "You work three times longer than the average industrial worker - at half the pay. Death is an occupational hazard. And the law says you can't have a union. What do you do?.... "In 1970, Everett Richardson and about 250 other Nova Scotia fishermen went on a fifteen-month struggle that rent the fabric of the province's society, gave rise to headlines across thecountry and became a rallying point and cause célèbre for Canadian labour as a whole. For those to whom it meant the most, this classic labour struggle was a bitter education in the realities of corporate capitalism. The Education of Everett Richardson reveals the way 'the system' works and gives aworker's-eye view of its dehumanizing results, capturing individual dramas and collective heroism. A rare and singularly moving book, it is a unique contribution to the understanding of Canadian labour." - from the rear cover. The chapters (unnumbered in the book) are: 1.
