Bernie did an interview with the Daily Iowan which has very few subs, so many will have missed this. I was happy to see that Bernie has now heard the plight of adjunct professors.


Yes, it is five years old, but the message remains the same. It is also a great way to learn real history. Thom Hartmann echoes Bernie when he calls on the will of the people. However, it has been five years . . . .


Shit! No wonder people boycotting Home Depot.


RIP Hector, way too young 🙁 A life well-lived.

The working man: What Hector Figueroa did to uplift and dignify labor in New York

One of the nation’s most effective champions for hardworking New Yorkers, for hardworking Americans, is gone.

At a moment when organized labor’s voice is often muted, its vision myopic, Hector Figueroa spoke forcefully and saw clearly. And, most important, won gains measured in fatter paychecks and better benefits.

32BJ Service Employees International Union, which he led for seven years, where he worked for a quarter century, bargained doggedly for years on behalf of 160,000 workers across 11 states: window cleaners, doormen and security officers.

Figueroa took care of those workers. But he was much more: the tip of the spear for oft-forgotten laborers in all corners of the economy.



T and R, humphrey!! 🙂
