Favoring Bankers over Boilermakers?
huffingtonpost.com — Sure, we don't like the fact that Wall Street's fantasy finance casino crashed the economy, but even that has a positive environmental angle.

And besides, the manufacturing sector accounts for fewer and fewer jobs each year, so why should we give a damn about it? Because no society can endure for long if it fails to create decent jobs for all its people.
