Brought to you by unions: The Weekends

How unions, church, synagogs and and anti-union industrialist brought us weekends.

Worth a listen this Labor Day weekend.

At this time of high stakes for all workers,  ten percent unemployment nationally, top heavy home mortgages and sharp political divides in Congress, it may be good to step back and think about the bigger picture of who we are as we do out jobs and go to work.

Consider the role performed by the American Labor Movement.

As you enjoy a three day weekend, most Americans will not even give a thought to what the day represents or the weekend that precedes it.

H istory of Labor Day

And remember those who died in Haymarket Square

Plus actions you can take today....
