09/02/19 - Missouri Mondays - Enjoy your Labor Day weekend? Thanks Unions!
On this Labor Day we hope as you enjoy time off with family and friends that you will also take a minute to remember and honor the sacrifices of American workers banding together in the labor movement. Most of us take for granted our 5 day work week, 8 hour work day, and safe working conditions but does anyone really believe that employers and government provided such workplace benefits out of pure generosity? As Frederick Douglass once said, “Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.” Time - August 30, 2019
Today the struggle continues for the courageous Stand Up KC low-wage workers in Missouri and those throughout the U.S. fighting for living wages and benefits and for their right to form a union in their workplace.
Unions are proof that we can accomplish great things when we take action together. “History is a great teacher. Now everyone knows that the labor movement did not diminish the strength of the nation but enlarged it. By raising the living standards of millions, labor miraculously created a market for industry and lifted the whole nation to undreamed of levels of production. Those who attack labor forget these simple truths, but history remembers them.” - Martin Luther King Jr.
THANK YOU! for answering the Missouri Mondays CALL TO ACTION!
