On behalf of the entire OnLabor team, I am very pleased to welcome you to our newly redesigned website. I’d like to extend my deep thanks to Jon White of Jon White Studios for his brilliant management of the redesign process and for his artistic vision. I would also like to express my gratitude to Fred and Sharon for their invaluable contributions throughout the process. In addition to its new look, the site contains a number of improved functions, including the new Featured Timelines (which consolidate analysis and news stories about important contemporary developments), an improved mobile format, and overall enhanced searchability. In our view, a revitalized labor movement should have a revitalized blog dedicated to covering it, and we hope you love the new site as much as we do.
