Working Man Blues
One of my favorite songs from Bob Dylan's 2006 album Modern Times is the one featured today, Working Man Blues. I found a nice version on YouTube with pictures of working people and their struggles.
That's the musical version. For the statistical one, check out this blog post from the WV Center on Budget and Policy. It shows the different ways the condition of working people in my state has eroded over the years.
As Dylan says, in this struggle, "you can hang back or fight your best on the front line"--but we could use some help on the front line right about now.
