Winners and Losers of the Week

Each week, we take a look at the biggest friends and foes of labor. We celebrate the workers winning big and small battles, and we shame the companies or people trying to deny working people their rights.

Winner: Hillary Clinton, who clearly showed that she was on the side of working families.

Runner-Up: AFT, whose new project, Teacher Adviser with Watson, opens up a new realm of technology for teachers.

Loser: Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, for fighting against overtime protections for his state's workers.

Runner-Up: Honeywell, which refuses to agree to a fair contract with its employees.
