The Dangerous Myth That Hillary Clinton Ignored the Working Class
To many white Trump voters, the problem wasn’t her economic stance, but the larger vision—a multi-ethnic social democracy—that it was a part of.
By Derek Thompson

“She detailed plans to help coal miners and steel workers. She had decades of ideas to help parents, particularly working moms, and their children. She had plans to help young men who were getting out of prison and old men who were getting into new careers. She talked about the dignity of manufacturing jobs, the promise of clean-energy jobs, and the Obama administration’s record of creating private-sector jobs for a record-breaking number of consecutive months. She said the word ‘job’ more in the Democratic National Convention speech than Trump did in the RNC acceptance speech; she mentioned the word 'jobs’ more during the first presidential debate than Trump did. She offered the most comprehensively progressive economic platform of any presidential candidate in history—one specifically tailored to an economy powered by an educated workforce.”

Chicago Police open fire on striking steel workers and their families killing 10 and wounding around 100. Anarchist Dorothy Day, who was present at the March and massacre, is quoted “On Memorial Day, May 30, 1937, police opened fire on a parade of striking steel workers and their families at the gate of the Republic Steel Company, in South Chicago. Fifty people were shot, of whom 10 later died; 100 others were beaten with clubs.”

I killed the President because he was the enemy of the good people, the good working people. I am not sorry for my crime.
(through clenched teeth) I am sorry I could not see my father.

Seoul: Mullae Art Village by Seoul Korea
Via Flickr:
The narrow alleyways have plenty of photogenic spots to explore. Mullae Art Village is an up and coming neighbourhood in Mullae-dong, a neighbourhood previously known for being the home to small forges and metalwork factories. Alongside the steel workers, artists, designers, restaurants and cafes have started moving into the area and bringing new life to this part of the city. Here you can really get a feel for Seoul’s industrial past as you explore a warren of small alleyways with murals painted on the walls and metalwork sculptures dotted around too. Accessible from: Mullae Station (Seoul Subway Line 2), Exit 7.

Tata Steel workers accept pension reforms despite reduced benefits

Thousands of UK steelworkers have agreed to a rescue deal with Tata, securing the future of their pensions albeit on less favourable terms.

The deal agreed on Wednesday will safeguard thousands of jobs and will guarantee £1bn worth of investment from Tata over the next ten years. However the current final salary pension scheme will be terminated as part of the deal and replaced with a less generous one.

Roy Rickhuss, secretary general of the Community union, said steelworkers had taken a “tough decision”.

Members of Community, which is a cross-industry union, backed the new deal by 72 per cent in favour and 28 per cent against. Turnout was more than 70 per cent.

“Nobody wanted to be in this situation but, as we have always said, it is vital that we now work together to protect the benefits already accrued and prevent the [British Steel Pension Scheme] from free-falling into the Pension Protection Fund,” Mr Rickhuss said.

“This ballot involved an extremely personal decision for everyone that voted. Whichever way our members cast their votes, we know they will not have taken that decision lightly and everyone’s opinions must be respected,” he added.

The three unions at Tata’s UK plants had recommended that their members accept the deal despite admitting it was not “without issues”.

Tony Brady, national officer for Unite, added the steelworks have made “great sacrifices” to ensure the UK’s steel industry has a future and Tata must now honour its commitments.

He said that anything less “would be a betrayal and add to the deep mistrust that steelworkers now have for the company”.

The Unite member vote in favour of the change with a 76 per cent to a 24 per cent split. GMB members voted in favour with a 74 per cent to 26 per cent divide.

Under the proposal, Tata will spin off its pension scheme into a separate entity, with the British Steel Pension Scheme to be closed to future accrual. It will be replaced with a defined contribution scheme. The BSPS is one of Britain’s largest pension schemes, with 130,000 members.

The Indian conglomerate said last year that it would sell its UK business but it has since decided to seek a partner and has been in lengthy talks with German firm ThyssenKrupp.

A Government spokesman said: "This positive vote is an important step forward for the future of Port Talbot and Tata Steel in the UK and it is now vital that all parties work together to deliver on the agreed proposals.”

John Llewellyn Lewis (February 12, 1880 – June 11, 1969) was an American leader of organized labor who served as president of the United Mine Workers of America from 1920 to 1960. A major player in the history of coal mining, he was the driving force behind the founding of the Congress of Industrial Organizations, which established the United Steel Workers of America and helped organize millions of other industrial workers in the 1930s.

A leading liberal, he played a major role in helping Franklin D. Roosevelt win a landslide in 1936, but as an isolationist broke with Roosevelt in 1940 on FDR’s anti-Nazi foreign policy. Lewis was a brutally effective and aggressive fighter and strike leader who gained high wages for his membership while steamrolling over his opponents, including the United States government. Lewis was one of the most controversial and innovative leaders in the history of labor, gaining credit for building the industrial unions of the CIO into a political and economic powerhouse to rival the AFL, yet was widely hated by calling for nationwide coal strikes which critics believed damaging to the American economy and war effort. His massive leonine head, forest-like eyebrows, firmly set jaw, powerful voice and ever-present scowl thrilled his supporters, angered his enemies, and delighted cartoonists. Coal miners for 40 years hailed him as their leader, whom they credited with bringing high wages, pensions and medical benefits.”

Well, we have good news and bad news. The good news is the photograph is genuine. Those are real dudes sitting on a real girder that was higher than Zeus’ rec room. The bad news is, the photo wasn’t part of a LIFE magazine series on the blue-collar workers of the Great Depression, or even a very specific group of performance artists. No, the photo is part of a publicity campaign to advertise the construction of the RCA Building, known today as the GE Building.

Less famous photos from the shoot include the steel workers playing football on the girder, sleeping on the girder, and doing Crocodile Mile on the girder.

The mysteries behind the picture started to unfold in 2012, when filmmaker Sean O Cualain started digging into the history of the photo shoot. Over time, he has managed to verify the history of the photo and even lock down the identities of two of the iron workers (the third guy from the right is named Joe Curtis, and the third from the left is Joseph Eckner). One day, he may be able to identify them all, although it seems like a mathematical certainty that at least two more of them will be named Joseph.
