6. Congressman Grayson is right.

Our national economy has changed. We are not in the days of the founding of the CIO. John L. Lewis, and the GM sit-down strike in Flint Michigan benefited millions of industrial workers, bringing them into a well paid working class. The reactionary counterstrike following Reaganism has taken much away. When, the president of the PATCO air traffic controllers was bound in chains before federal court, it was a turning point. Perhaps, it is now the workers (or servants) of the monolithic service trade of Walmart, McDonalds, and the like that will have to lead a counter on these multi-billionaires.

Photographs of a protestor against Walmart in Ontario California was partly the impetus for me to write this essay: Black Friday.
