In the words of Agnes Heller: "When the voices of 'little people' are ignored, sometimes those with power need to be made to pay attention."

Kudos to the Bart workers for stepping forward. Their victory will send positive reverberations across the nation.

And Kudos to Cholo for his indefatigability in the face of shameful media censorship.

Mikie, despite your link to the far left dailykostic, the union did not win, they caved. The workers haven't voted yet, so we will see....in the meantime, union tools such as yourself will have to find other windmills to tilt at. Or, maybe you could stop trying to make sure taxpayers, middle class commuters and hard working private sector employees don't get the shaft in favor of your public sector drones.........

"This offer is more than we wanted to pay, but it is also a new path for our partnership with our workers," Crunican said.

Yeah, boy did they ever cave!
