a big win for workers

Brother Josh reports that the Yale-New Haven hospital has reached an agreement with the workers!

Yale has been union busting for decades [about 6% of all google instances for "union busting also involve yale]. Yale is among the nastiest anti-worker corporations around. It is extremely exciting that the largest current tension point has been resolved. I haven't read the agreement, but my guess is that it will lead to insurance for people who didn't have it and enough money for full-time workers to see their children.

The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.
--theodore parker

we don't often get to see days when that justice is undeniable and in clear view, but it sound after many years, signs, editorials, research breakthroughs, petitions, attacks, devastations, and moments of elation, that day is today.

may the next day come more readily.
