Happy Labor Day To Everyone Who Works For A Living.

Happy Labor Day to everyone.

The Labor movement is alive and well here in the Hudson Valley in 2008. More people are feeling the need to have a union in their workplace. The weak economy and high bills have left a bad aftertaste. Workers have been left as an afterthought in too many businesses. In order to gain strength, more people realize they must band together, it's that simple. It happens in every walk of life. People bond with those in like situations. We are at a turning point and a time when the workers are turning to Labor unions again because it is now apparent that no one has been in their corner or looking out for their interest. The blunt realization is that no one ever really will, the people must do it themselves. Here are some videos to watch and enjoy over your weekend.

How many more free projects do we have to do before we get paying jobs.

The article was great, but labor should stick to fighting for their members. Ulster County hasn't really rolled out the red carpet for labor. I hear Mike hein will be privatizing golden hill after election day.

John needs to be tougher on these politians. Free labor is not the way.
