South Coast Working

UMass Dartmouth Arnold M. Dubin Labor Education Center

Often overlooked, The South Coast of Massachusetts -- the southeastern part of the state between Cape Cod and Rhode Island - is a fascinating region with a vibrant working class and immigrant heritage. On South Coast Working, you'll hear the stories of scallop fishermen, seafood processors, textile workers, union leaders, and more. Topics include the decades-long struggle for commuter rail, and the effort to recruit a diverse construction workforce to build the nation's first offshore windfarm. South Coast Working is a project of the Arnold M. Dubin Labor Center at UMass Dartmouth.
