Wayne A. Nealis is a left political activist and writer in Minneapolis, Minnesota focusing on communications and strategies for social change. He has roots in the labor movement, having been a toolmaker and union activist in a Minnesota industrial union. Later he earned a degree in journalism from the University of Minnesota and practiced journalism and public and media relations.
These two careers and experiences afford him perspectives on economics, work and class relationships, production processes and communications that add insight to his analyses and ideas that he could not otherwise incorporate into his writing. His perspective springs from a Marxist theoretical outlook on human history, development and class struggle, as well as the emancipatory contributions of feminism, black liberation and anti-colonial struggles.
Some of his work is published in WorkingUSA: The Journal of Labor and Society, including an article on a labor strategy for national health insurance and one on alternative fueled vehicles and the auto industry crisis in 2009. You can find his more recent work on the website Dissident Voice, MinnPost and Marxism-Leninism Today and in the Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder and the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
