Mott’s and the “Race to the Bottom”

Over at Dissent Magazine, our own Leo Casey writes that the recent Mott’s strike is “the latest battle against the ‘race to the bottom,’ the process of undercutting labor market standards that has plagued American labor for the last three decades.” He also counters Matt Yglesias on the issue, saying that the usually reasonable progressive blogger “seems to lose the very capacity to empathize and understand” when writing about the plight of the working people at the center of the Mott’s story.
