Jim Hightower Where's the “Dignity of Work” When Work Kills Workers?   Corporate acolytes and right-wing moralists constantly preach to laboring stiffs about the uplifting dignity of work.   Of course, that's “dignity” as defined and controlled by corporate elites, not by workers, and the reward for it frequently includes on-the-job injuries… and death. Not that CEOs and well-heeled investors intend to sicken, maim, and kill thousands of laborers every year – but they certainly do put them in positions that assure such unhappy results.

Jim Hightower Making Work Work for Workers   As a writer, I get stuck every so often straining for the right words to tell my story. Over the years, though, I've learned when to quit tying myself into mental knots over sentence construction, instead stepping back and rethinking where my story is going.   This process is essentially what millions of American working families are going through this year as record numbers of them are shocking bosses, politicians, and economists by stepping back and declaring: “We quit!”
