Happy 125th Labor Day from the labor movement, which fought for years to give you the eight-hour workday and the five-day work week. Union approval is at a high point again; I think people are realizing that we still need them. (Now to organize advertising employees…)
Here’s my favorite cover of Woody Guthrie’s “Union Maid” by the New Harmony Sisterhood Band. I love that they added their own verse to the end:
We modern union maids are also not afraid
To walk the line, leave jobs behind–
And we’re not just the Ladies Aid!
We’ll fight for equal pay and we will have our say
We’re workers too the same as you and fight the union way.
