Trash sorter fights wage theft, and wins

(This post was originally published in Workhorse Politics)

This vid was made by the venerable organization Interfaith Worker Justice. It’s a heart-warming success story told with great humor by Cleve Williams, a trash sorter at an Ohio recycling plant.

Cleve Williams is my idea of a true American hero. He takes our usual idea, the one we buy into, about “who has the clout in this country” and turns it on its head.
