Lyrics of the day

By Steve Earle, from his song "Chistmas in Washington"

So come back Woody Guthrie
Come back to us now
Tear your eyes from paradise
And rise again somehow
If you run into Jesus
Maybe he can help you out
Come back Woody Guthrie to us now

Exciting News from UNI

UNI stands for Union Network International, a network of unions that has committed itself to unionizing Walmart - and not just here in the US, but also overseas, including the wage-slave factories that supply Walmart with its cheapo goods.

I have felt for a long time that internationalizing organizing efforts will be the key to increasing workers' power. In other words, let the Moneyed Class globalize the economy: we'll globalize unions. Via The Prairie Populist.
