A new Strike! Commentary by LNS’s Jeremy Brecher evaluates the Inflation Reduction Act, its strengths and flaws, and how the labor climate movement can take advantage of the Act and help fix it, including:

  • Use the funding from the IRA to build a “Green New Deal from Below”
  • Protect the frontline communities that are threatened by parts of the IRA
  • Spend on real, not false, solutions
  • Recruit and train the new climate workforce
  • Enforce labor rights and standards
  • Provide a just transition for workers and communities
  • Use the power of Executive Action
