We say they're heroes...

but we treat them like chumps.

People just don't know what the laborers of this country went through before unions fought back. Google "The Battle of Blair Mountain" sometime. Why that's never been made into a movie I'll never know. George Clooney, I'm looking at you.
in reference to:
"The protests against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's (R) proposals to roll back public employee unions rights are continuing Wednesday, with schools in the state capital Madison closing as the result of teachers calling in sick en masse."
