Labor kicks ass

So says the Wall Street Journal.

I was at a union staff meeting yesterday, and a presenter from Wellstone Action was giving us a presentation on organizing for power. One of the statistics that he laid out was that back when labor represented a third of all workers in the 50's, we were 20% of the electorate. Now that we represent only 13% or so of American workers, we're 20% of the electorate. We're getting much better at getting people to the polls and getting to vote their interests.

That's why they hate us on us. Playa, don't hate. Negotiate.
