Could Time person of the year be "THE WORKER"? The Bangladesh factory fire feels like the tipping
point in a spate of recent events focused on his/her plight. We've got striking Walmart workers. Fast food workers demanding better wages. Long Beach Port workers are on strike or were earlier this week. I must be leaving others out. As another DUER noted, something is in the air. This movement will probably gain momentum as holidays approach. I expect something to go down in China in the next few days... maybe at an IPhone5 Assembly plant? Woody Guthrie, I hope you are strumming in the cosmic vapor watching all this.
added: I forgot to mention the the key role unions played in the election.
