    Don’t forget the demands the workers are making for recognition of their unionization efforts. This is arguably more important that the demand for a wage increase, as it would provide workers with a more democratic workplace and help set the stage for a larger resurgence of organized labour. The mainstream media has willfully ignored this crucial demand, as it is totally outside the pail of modern political discourse. I cannot more strongly support efforts to increase the minimum wage, but it must be accompanied by greatly increased control over working conditions, benefit packages, job protection and the right to collective bargaining.
