Part of my heart still resides in Seattle, and many of my loyalties still with the labor movement. And in the wake of the closure of the generaly-labor-friendly newspaper in Seattle, my respect for the local alternative culture magazine has risen. So when a friend and nominal anarchist (and, it must be said, a punk rock afficionado and the happy-hour activity coordinator for our circle of friends - yes, we have one) sent me a link to this article in The Stranger
, I remembered a little of why I am on this journey in the first place. Thanks, Nic.The State of Our Unions: A Look at Seattle's Deep, Bloody Labor History - and Its Uncertain Future.
