3. America needs to take a good and long look at itself
These workers are the spirit of America, but these companies throwing their workers out of the street and the rich who are getting richer, they are not.

7. These workers are heroes...
...for having the guts to stand up for their rights.

Wish more would do the same.

The capitalist fat cats have, as per usual, killed the golden goose but are still feasting on the carcass.

Assholes have no concept of the anger that is building.

30. They will inspire more to do the same,
instead of bending over and taking it...AGAIN! It will also inspire others to see the kind of support the Republic Windows & Doors workers get from the American people...AND President-elect Obama!!!

29. They have my total support,
and so does PE Obama for HIS unequivocal support of them. That in itself is a such a clear-cut CHANGE from what we've had for the past eight years. In fact, I can't remember the last time a president showed such total, unqualified support for a union. Almost makes me believe there really *IS* a new sheriff in town!!!
