Today is workers' playtime. Or it was supposed to be, before the 24 hour- 7 days a week consumerism took over. Now it's another chance to spend good money on cheap crap "marked down" to honor the god of capitalism run amok.
I could really rant about this state of affairs but I'll spare us all. Stevil has covered the bases already:
It's enough to know that 8 years after a failed union drive, where we were demonized, threatened, harassed and at last union-busted, there will be a union after all. They couldn't do it now if we hadn't done it then. It was worth it.
Solidarity, brothers and sisters.
Happy Labor Day.
