Labor Day Special

Given the economy, the unemployment rate, and the decline of the labor movement, this is hardly a Labor Day to celebrate. That said, perhaps we need to actually take the time think of why the labor movement got started in the first place. The US now has the largest split between the wealthy and the average American since the robber barrons and corporate giants whose abuse laid the foundation for the birth and growth of labor unions.Maybe the answer is to value the labor force, keeps jobs here in America, pay a little more for products than those who support foreign workers by shopping at Walmart and realize that if we do not, we may all be working for peanuts.
