Let's talk about Labor Day

Today is NOT just a day for picnics and fun.  Today is a day to remember the brave men and women who gave so much for those who work for a living today.  

Every law that has been passed that effects our lives today was fought for by organized Labor.  We would not have a 40 hour work week, overtime pay, child labor laws, social security, medicare, paid health insurance, vacations. family leave and the list goes on.  

It was the Unions that fought for and got the standard of  living we enjoy.  But sadly we have corporate GREED and fully funded crooked POLITICIANS that want to take all that has been fought for away.  That is why we have some people working 2 and 3 jobs just to make ends meet.  Had the minimum wage stayed current with inflation it would have been over $22 per hour.  

The battle isn't over.  We all need to vote our wallets this November.  Both the Democrats and Republicans could care less about you.  This Labor Day message was brought to you by those of us from Organized Labor who know how you got the WEEKEND.
