Unions Front-and-Center in Occupy Wall Street

  • Labor occupies Wall Street (Ben Smith, Politico)
  • Labor Wades Delicately Into Occupy Wall Street (By Andrew J. Hawkins, City Hall News) “For a brief period of time the unions will be front-and-center, talking about macro issues rather than things that are micro, things that are selfless rather than things that are selfish,” Adler said. “And they will being doing it at the center of media attention that they have not been successful in mobilizing themselves."
  • The Politics of Occupy Wall Street: Bernie Sanders, Progressives, Big Unions Endorse; Obama's Silent (John Nichols, The Nation) Congressman Dennis Kucinich, an Ohio Democrat who sought the Democratic nomination for president in 2004 and 2008, was equally enthusiastic: To the young men and women who are braving the overreaction of local authorities to raise their voices against the corruption and manipulation of our nation that emanates from Wall Street: I say to you that your presence is making a difference.
