There's been a lot going on the past few weeks in the world of labor. From a narrowly averted government shutdown(at least for now), to continued anti-union hijinks in Ohio, Wisconsin, and elsewhere, to God knows what else.
As I was talking to a good labor mentor of mine, he theorized as to the cause of the political climate, as far as labor is concerned. His explanation was that both labor and big business prepared for a potential war over the Employee Free Choice Act. The problem started when labor never yelled charge, and big business did.
Anybody have a flare gun?
