    Working stiffs, unite - editorial by Studs Terkel, Chicago Tribune
    What brings workers together can be heavy-handed employers, but it also can be a belief, a hope of improving the climate and community at work--the spaces where so many of us spend so much of our lives. Respect on the job and a voice at the workplace shouldn't be something Americans have to work overtime to achieve. Their work is more than an inanimate unit of labor, and they deserve to knock off at the end of the day with the same dignity they clocked in with.
