American workers are joining in the worldwide celebrations at the inauguration of new US President Barack Obama with a chorus of “yes, workers can.”

Service Employees International Union President Andy Stern said words are inadequate to capture what the inauguration means to working people. “How can you describe what it feels like to a janitor or healthcare or childcare worker who has felt so powerless for so long to now feel so powerful….millions of working men and women who have finally found hope, who once again believe in change and are ready for action in Washington.”

Postal workers were gathering in Washington to celebrate the swearing in of President Obama, with APWU President William Burrus saying “The election of Barack Obama was a victory for working people – one that we are eager to celebrate together.”
