Book Description
Power of the Unemployed by Kathryn Welbourn & Chris Brookes is a play based on the true story of an inurrection by jobless workers in St. John`s during the 1930s.

The Great Depression was a time of desperation for millions of people in North America. In Newfoundland, where a democratic government was replaced by a British-controlled commission, the thousands of people living on "the dole" had no where to run.

As the situaltion worsened, a voice amongst the poor, Pierce Power, a firebrand leader of unemployed workers in St. John`s, led a challenge against Newfoundland`s business and political elite. In Power of the Unemployed, the story of a poor underclass rising up during Newfoundland`s darkest years, is told.

Chris Brookes is a writer and documentary producer. Kathryn Welbourn is a journalist and newspaper publisher.
