About Us


Never forget, people DIED for the eight hour workday.

A famous quote from Maya Angelou

Without Labor nothing prospers.

A famous quote from Sophocles

To a right-winger, unions are awful. Why do right-wingers hate unions? Because collective bargaining is the power that a worker has against the corporation. Right-wingers hate that.

Labor Unions are the leading force for democratization and progress.
