Romney and Ryan and Respect for Workers

A bold and innovative street artist with the simple name "JR" has transformed an unoccupied building at 14th and T Streets in Northwest Washington, DC. JR has given the nation's capital a new and inspiring mural, an enormous version of the iconic "I Am A Man" photograph of AFSCME sanitation workers in Memphis, Tenn., during their 1968 strike. This project could not be more timely, as it provides a powerful reminder that the struggle for respect the workers in Memphis undertook nearly 50 years ago is an ongoing battle. ….  Romney speaks out regularly against the right of sanitation workers and other public service workers to have a voice on the job.  …. This mindless rush to belittle the worth of workers pervades the elitists who fund and support the Romney-Ryan ticket.
