And presto!

The unionized workforce grows smaller. From The Washington Monthly:
In a move that surprised exactly no one, the NLRB voted along party lines yesterday to reclassify 8 million workers as "supervisors" who will no longer have any protection under U.S. labor laws.
This is no change in policy for the National Labor Relations Board, established with the New Deal's NLRA, but another in a series of decisions that continue to erode the power of workers and unions.

For some of the best data and analysis around on the topics of working Americans, check out The State of Working America, an annual or bi-annual volume that is, for geeks like me, required (and eagerly anticipated) reading. Pre-order the 2006-07 edition now!
