    because the real problem with the term worker did not come from the right. It came from referring to folks that did manual labor as workers. Manufacturing and construction were considered workers jobs. Office jobs weren't considered in the same light.
    That time has passed. Most people that work for a living no longer refer to themselves as "workers".  That's one of the problems with the left not wanting to realize how important language is.
    It's a Pollyanna view that you can say anything because you have the truth on your side. The world doesn't work that way.
    You might as well try to rehabilitate the word Groovy.
