Judging from the enthusiastic reaction of membership, the issue has tremendous support with the rank and file. The Steel workers have been fighting for national infrastructure investment in rail and maglev for many years, and feature a devoted link on their website. The issue was seconded by William Greider, an economics writer for The Nation magazine, whose article, The Nation Rethinks Globalization, is featured in this month's edition.</p></div></body>
