I often cite Daily Kos Laura Clawson when she is describing attacks on workers.  Today the news is good.  Pro-labor mayors were elected in New York and Boston.  Voters in Cincinnati came out in favor of protecting the pensions of public sector workers.  While this news may warm our hearts, we still have to remember that Governor Christie, a loud foe of unions, was re-elected by a landslide in New Jersey.  The tide is still against labor and workers.  The good news is that workers haven’t lost the will to fight.  When they win, we all win (except for the Koch brothers and their fellow greedy billionaires).
