The AFL-CIO, along with numerous civil rights, liberal, social and church groups is engaged in a nation-wide boycott of J.P. Stevens. A question to be asked is whose jobs will be lost as a result of this boycott? Will they be those of union officials, or those of the textile workers? Another textile manufacturer, the Farah Manufacturing Company, has never recovered from a nation-wide boycott.
