The anti-labor forces are gathering steam on this issue, all the way from letters to the editor to business leaders. I think that people who actually punch a time clock should be the leaders (and interviewed first) in this conversation, not folks who have a vested interest in workers not being able to organize.
But what do I know? I’m just a guy who used to punch a time clock.

Correction Department: Festival - Goddesses, Angels, and Amazons
The organizers of the upcoming March festival have issued a correction to an email that was sent out on their behalf. It reads:
At our first meeting, our planning committee agreed unanimously on the inclusion of men as contributors, presenters, and participants.
We have stated our mission: To celebrate the 'divine feminine' in our history, images, and visions.
We believe there are men among us who can do that with us - - the 'call for entries and proposals' is open to all.
Acceptance will be based on relevance to theme as determined by committee.
Vickie Kelley, Soap & Vick Events
The email in question also spelled Vickie Kelley’s name wrong, which I made worse by reprinting it my blog, which might be forgivable, if I hadn’t known Vickie, like, forever.
A simple oops doesn’t even begin to cover that one.
Vicks 44 - Are you people insane?
I have seen the commercial on TV, and even seen this message on the Vicks Formula 44 website:
Watch how Formula 44 saved a synchronized swimming team's day in this recent TV ad.
So - they take Vicks 44, which takes care of their symptoms - but instead of going home to rest they jump into what one can only assume is a public pool?
The warning: Do not try this at home surely applies in this instance.
