  1. This is definitely a BFD. In New York State as well as California. But…as always…I think it’s good to maintain some perspective.

    Eric Levitz at New York Magazine and Jordan Weissmann at at Slate provide that perspective.

    I’m not happy with the time tables. (I would have preferred a shorter wait time for full implementation.) And there are definitely some risks involved. But I think the potential benefit to workers nationally provide an acceptable balance to those potential risks. It’s real shot in the arm to the labor movement in America…which really, really needs some encouragement.
