    And what does that prove? If the strikers had the kind of support strikers once had, the kind of solidarity that cuts across industry lines where all of the trades would turn out in mutual support, they would have prevailed.

    If things get bad enough to wake up the American worker again, all hell will break loose.

    This is the problem when you turn over these issues to Marxist economists... they think in such macro economic and global terms that they have forgotten that local labor does, indeed, have a valuable place, still, in American towns.

    Whether its a taxicab or an auto factory, withholding labor can have an impact. I saw the potential, on the ground, in the Occupy actions. It was impressive.
