Inspiration Wednesday: 'Celebration'

Not exactly a union song, but appropriate for today's defeat of right-to-work for less in New Hampshire today.

And we liked the media's take on it. Here's the Associated Press:
In a cat-and-mouse game over union rights, New Hampshire’s labor unions have prevailed despite Republican House Speaker William O’Brien’s attempt to time the vote on a vetoed bill to his advantage.
The House voted 240-139 Wednesday to sustain Gov. John Lynch’s veto of a bill that barred unions from collecting a share of costs from non-members. The vote killed the bill. Cheers erupted from the gallery from union workers who attended session after session to urge the bill’s defeat since Lynch vetoed it in May.
O’Brien had been working to get enough votes to override the veto.
