Of course, the National Association of Manufacturers isn't very happy. According to their "Shopfloor" blog, they kind of liked the word "workforce,"
a long-overdue modernization of the name to reflect the lexicon of the modern-day work place.Uh, right.

In this case, it is a great leap backward and a clear sign to anyone who may have doubted it that the unions are firmly back in charge of the committee's agenda."Backward" to the future, that is.
I say Hallelujah; it's about time.
