Talking 'bout Labor

Nathan Newman, as usual, has the indispensable last word on the labor debate. Arguing over how to revitalize labor and publicize its internal struggle for reform is well and good, but bloggers would be better used and the movement better off if they focused their attention towards individual, on-the-ground labor fights. Point taken. To start, he suggests signing up for e-mails from American Rights at Work (done) and shining the light on the Bush NLRB's various outrages, the most recent being their ruling that supervisors who advocate for a union taint the election and invalidate the results, while supervisors who campaign against a union are perfectly kosher. Done.
