New Deal parallels

In the 1930s in bleak economic times, the people of U.S. got a New Deal because labor was able to press on the political and industrial classes. Well the system is falling apart again, and you've suggested that the next step is the organized movement of the people to face the government and make change happen for our workplaces, our welfare, and everything else. My question is, this time, in this century, can enough pressure be exerted within this one nation? Do the people of the U.S. have the requisite leverage against corporate regimes or does globalization simply divide and conquer economies without organization and solidarity on a GLOBAL scale? In other, less bumbling words, how can we follow the blueprint of the New Deal while taking into account such a different global economic system?
