…we should realize that our FREEDOM IS NOT SECURE when inequality reigns and corporations rule. Workers have been reduced to economic servitude fighting for subsistence wages with no benefits and even less security. Labor Day celebrates an illusion, a memory of the 50s when labor unions gave birth to a nascent middle class. But now, we are told by people who would turn the clock back to the ’20s, that labor unions are part of the problem.

So, for the sake of workers everywhere, we must fight for a rebirth of trade unionism as a means of resurrecting the American dream and assuring that tomorrow will be a better day.
