Great piece in Huffington Post about Global Jobs Crisis

I really liked this piece on the need for a Jobs Strategy in the Trans-Pacific Partnership and EU-US FTA by Michael Shank and Sabina Dewan in yesterday's Huffington Post.   Shank and Dewan draw some interesting and powerful linkages about the potential impact of the current global jobs crisis and the lack of decent work for so many around the world.  The parallels between our own age with Rana Plaza and social unrest are eerily like those of a century ago with the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire and that era's social movements.
