Bob Herbert: "When you talk to the workers who are hurting most in this epic downturn, they are overwhelmingly out there on their own." "I have long believed that virtually all workers should be organized, whether actually in a union or not. The man or woman who goes home after a long shift with barely enough to pay bills and nothing put away for an emergency, and who knows that he or she could be terminated at any moment for any reason, is subject to a permanent state of anxiety. There should be someone, some group or organization, to turn to for advice and support."
