    and I'm 34.  I don't think the labor movement appreciates quite how many allies it could have, if it bothered to go and look for us.

    The two things Teabaggers hate most are: being called racists; and black people.

    •  A movement cannot simply engulf you (0+ / 0-)

      you must join the movement.

      Any individual can join Working America and be a part of the labor movement. Their organizers work hard knocking on doors and making phone calls to find people like you, but ultimately it is up to you to join.

      There may be a case for saying that you are not convinced that the movement is worth joining, which is what I believe the diarist is getting at. The foundation in education is not there. As someone who is involved in the labor movement, I'd love to know more about what it would take to convince folks like you that this is a movement worth engaging in, to participate in grassroots actions we help coordinate, to tell your friends and family and anyone who will listen that this the movement of our generation.
