Yahoo News/AP: Fla. Wal-Mart Workers Start to Organize

This is very good news and I think it might actually work. Despite what Wal-mart would like, I don’t think it has the political capital anymore to crush this movement. It is already too big to stop. I think now it is more likely that Wal-mart will try to sideline or even co-opt this group.

I sure wish they would get this group in Oklahoma. The two biggest exploitative employers these days in Oklahoma are Wal-mart and the Indian Casinos (many who pay their workers $6/hour or less). I would love to see some organizing work in those arenas, either by the mainstream corporate unions or better by the radical folks like the IWW.
