The collegeboys at Tapped do it again, in a post dripping with the sort of condescension that gets yuppies knocked on their asses (if they say the wrong words in the right bar.) I'm waiting for Nathan Newman to respond.

It's important to understand that snobbery is one of the reasons unions haven't spread as much as they should in the white collar economy. The UAW used to represent the secretaries and curatorial assistants at the Whitney Museum. My girlfriend at the time was the shop steward. After she left they pushed to decertify, using class as an issue.

"The only way Tapped could be any more supportive of unions is if we joined one."
"I'm not an autoworker I'm an art historian."
update: Nathan Newman is more generous than I am.
