Instead of asking "What is to be done?", we could start with a different question: "What should I do?" As it turns out, the right-wing hecklers we've all encountered are half right: we should get jobs. And then we should do what we tell workers to do all the time: organize our workplaces. This tactic has a name and a history. It's called "salting." Salting has deep roots in the history of the labour movement and the Left.
