Mainstream media finds out workers are struggling

The mainstream media is finally waking up to the economic stress experienced by tens of millions of American workers -- you know, the economic stress that labor unions have been talking about for years. In the video above, CBS is surprised to find that low-income people don't just live in ghettoes -- and that people who used to live comfortable lives are now struggling. Duh-oh!!

The New York Times is astounded to learn that, the government has not yet published ... (shows) 51 million people with incomes less than 50 percent above the poverty line...Perhaps the most surprising finding is that 28 percent work full-time, year round...
Not all that surprising if you've been paying attention to wage theft, misclassification, union-busting, outsourcing, privatization and job-killing trade deals.

But hey, at least they're starting to learn.
