As we cross over from one century to the next I would like to share with you the following statement that hopefully will instill a reminder to never forget our union roots:

“Once, people had nothing,” the union leader says.
“Then, in the 1930s, they got the right to organize.
They got unemployment insurance, which businesses fought,   saying it would drive them out of business.


They got sick benefits, which businesses fought,  saying it would drive them out of business.
They got sick benefits, vacations, holidays, pensions, all things businesses fought, saying it would drive them out of business.
“Now, people have houses, cars. They send their kids to school.

And what’s happened?
They forgot how they got it.”
