  •  Why don't union issues catch fire (1+ / 0-)

    with the left the way they should?

    I'm used to seeing labor rights issues go unnoticed by many progressives

    Yes, yes, yes. Even here in San Francisco, a pro-EFCA rally attracted maybe 200 at its peak. In this "union" town!

    I've banged the EFCA drum on my show again and again. It doesn't catch on with the listeners, no matter what the approach or guests.

    The Republic window company story out of Chicago was water in the desert, seeing people suddenly pay attention to matters of solidarity and employee strength. Now we're back to business as usual.

    If EFCA - or any union issue! - ginned up half the enthusiast interest of the latest Palin faux pas or birther outburst, I'd be relieved. But it's a non-starter. Why? WHY?
