"Talking Union" By: Pete Seeger

Labor balladeer Pete Seeger has been a musician, songwriter, political activist, and union organizer since the 1930s. He wrote the song "Talking Union" with Millard Lampell, Lee Hays, and other members of the Almanac Singers, while they were helping to organize CIO unions in 1941. It is recorded on the album Talking Union. This song explains to workers how and why they should join a union. Like contemporary "rap music," it is a "talking" song with music in the background.
