62. The world of 1919
is ALOT different than the world of 2008 and what worked back then may not work today. We are in a totally different mindset today than back then. Back then unions were gaining strength, today they are losing strength.

Also your post, while a good one does not address the issues that lower income individuals face today, the loss of 1 days pay can cause some of them not to be able to afford gas in their cars to get to that low paying job, etc...

I agree something needs done but the problem is figuring out what can be done that will hurt the oil companies but not the working individual. See what I am trying to say here?
