Is the Michigan thing the death knell of the American labor movement? [View all]

I am feeling pretty bad about things.

There is nothing that can be done to overturn this crap vote since they put a spending clause it, making it referendum-proof. But that's a detail.

As outraged as you or I may be, the larger population pretty much doesn't give a shit.

It may take a generation to overcome this. This really is, it seems to me, a serious blow.

And yeah. It could be the death knell of unions.
