The war on workers is unrelenting under Donald Trump, but there are still bright spots, and this week in particular had a few of them.
● Let’s start by once again celebrating that Missouri voters turned back an anti-union law—and it wasn’t even close. While that was a fight to keep Missouri workers from being dragged backward and down, it was a fight that the union movement won, even in a red state.

● New York City is putting limits on Uber and Lyft:
