I know, certainly the major division within the working class is outerwear brand loyalty! And clearly anyone making enough to wear Carhartts must run a hedge fund, no doubt heavily invested in McD stocks, too! Clearly there's no such thing as class interest transcending pay grades and brand choices, and of course you've read all about how the fast food workers striking all over the country are REALLY preppies in disguise, nay more, they're agents of the Bolshevik-Muslim-Illuminati plot to destroy America!

So, comrade, explain to us your analysis of how wages drive taxes and biofuels subsidy policy? I'm genuinely intrigued.

Wooooot! Next step: build and train for deploying the "proxy strike" tactic pioneered in the French general strike of 2010: shut down targets by mobbing them with hundreds of sitters, so workers don't risk retaliation but economic damage is done. Wonder if FightFor15 would get behind this tactic nationally, cause obviously it's a waste of bail unless it's big and coordinated...
