'Lunch Ladies Rock': Winners and Losers of the Week

In our regular weekly feature, we’ll be taking a look at the winners and losers of the week in the struggle for the rights of working families. The winners will be the persons or organizations that go above and beyond to expand or protect the rights of working families or working people who have fought for or won a significant victory. The losers will be whoever went above and beyond to limit or deny those rights or the working people who have lost a right or a battle for expanding or keeping their rights.
