Labor Day 2020

Labor Day is a time to pause, reflect and to thank all those who keep this nation vibrant. You are the guts of the country.

Labor has battled many adversaries over the decades.  It has sparred with management.  It has railed against 'right to work' legislation.  It has struggled to compete against low wage workers in foreign countries.

But this year it has been sucker-punched by the most formidable adversary that has ever entered the arena. And Labor is still reeling.  And, so are the rest of us.

An enemy like no other

It will be a slow grind, but it will lumber forward.  Yes, we will reach the other side.  How will we get there?  Of course, we will need our medical and scientific community to put the virus in its place.  And everyone will have a role to play.  But, the grit, sweat and determination of Labor will be a major force leading us out of the abyss.
