Solidarity Center

In the recent 2010 Solidarity Center report "Justice for All: the Struggle for Worker Rights in Egypt he notes that Joel Beinin, the report author, "brings to the study of workers’ rights in Egypt a lifetime of distinguished scholarship. In accessible prose, he provides just the right amount of historical background, as well as the political and legal framework, that affects workers. Egyptians are finally seeing their country’s economy grow, but the distribution of wealth is becoming less and less equal. This will pose an enormous challenge as Egypt heads into a tricky transitional period. This study provides readers with a solid basis for understanding one of the key challenges that faces Egypt in the years ahead.”
