Point of Order: Unions And Their Members Give Back To Their Communities Every Day
Organized Labor gives MORE back to their communities than most people realize. This goes on all over the country. The fact is that we just don't publicize it. There are hundreds of donations of money amounting to thousands of dollars to community, youth groups and schools. That is in addition to a massive amount of volunteer work done for the needy each year by all of the unions in the Hudson Valley and yet - you have some local people and even some politicians, who still attempt to discredit labor.
There are endless ways that we can all help each other in the Hudson Valley if we support each other.
Support the unions, support the middleclass and support good wages. The return on that support is the best investment you can make for the local community.
