When Occupy Philadelphia showed up at the corporate headquarters of Presby's Inspired Life to mic check the CEO of a union busting nursing home company this week, it wasn't an action that could be narrowly defined as a "union" action. Sure, the African American and immigrant workers of color that have been struggling for the last two years to organize a union and bargain a contract for better working conditions and living conditions for their residents have been doing it as a union. However, what solidarity is really about, is the coming together of workers to demand that, at work, at home, and in every aspect of our lives, direct democracy and the power to make collective decisions together knows no boundaries.
