"Roll up our sleeves" is right. There were three items on Obama's labor platform: raising minimum wage, eliminating permanent striker replacements, and passing EFCA, the Employee Free Choice Act. There isn't a straight line from here to there on any of these.

We can exhale now. And roll up our sleeves.
And even, perhaps start our chatter again.
