Which Way America: War at Work or Working Together to Solve our Problems?
Thomas A. Kochan, George M. Bunker Professor, MIT Sloan School of Management and Co-Director, MIT Institute for Work and Employment Research, writes: 'maybe this is just the wake-up call America needs to address the steady decline in labor policy that got us to this point. We have allowed worker rights to quietly and slowly erode in the private sector for a long time without recognizing its consequences or getting irate about it. Now we see it happening in bald and sudden form in the public sector. The 100,000 people who hit the streets of Madison may be the shock needed to see this problem clearly and to take action.'http://www.tuc.org.uk/international/tuc-19359-f0.cfm
