In the early 1970s I met Tim Costello, a truck driver and union activist, and began a forty-year collaboration. In 1973 we spent a summer travelling across the US interviewing young workers. The result was the book Common Sense for Hard Times, which combined the insights gleaned from more than 100 interviews with young workers with interpretation of the historical forces that shaped their lives.
