A young mother gets on the right side of social, political and economic injustice. Aided by the spirit of Mother Jones and former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, she raises herself and others out of poverty and restores upward mobility to the middle class. She shuns government assistance and gets business and labor on the same side.
This is a work of fiction, but the town of Welch, West Virginia, has a place in history as the victim of corporate greed for 100 years. The characters are also real: among them the grocer, the hardware guy, an “accidental” billionaire and a wealthy franchiser. Together they prove capitalism can produce wealth for the many, not just the few.
As an amateur folk singer, Molly Jones gets the stage name MoJo as her star rises. As an activist, she gets the label “rainmaker for the working class.”
