The Million Worker March in the Media

Here is a short list of articles about the Million Worker March in the media. If you have time to read only one article, make that Derek Tyner's interview with Clarence Thomas -- an impressive organizer. If the Million Worker March did nothing other than put this man on the stage of national politics more prominently than before, the march would be still worth it.
