Yo, sciencegeek...

My grand daddy was one of those tough guys who were involved in organizing unions... He had the scars to prove it... But he was tough... He worked on a lot of tall buildings in New York City... He's leave Trenton, where my dad was born, on Sunday night and come home Friday night... My dad got bounced around alot...

My mom was a tough pro-union lady and she loved Walther Ruther, the president of the United Auto Workers...

Ya' know, if my dad had come up today he wouldn't have had the opportunities that he had back then...

We need to be having a real discussion about just how poorly our working class is paid...

The minimum wage should be $13 an hour... Even at that most people would be living in poverty...
