Benefits Bearing the Union Label - Happy Labor Day!

H/t to Lowell for this:




Excerpt from speech:
So let us never forget: much of what we take for granted-the 40-hour work week, the minimum wage, health insurance, paid leave, pensions, Social Security, Medicare-they all bear the union label. It was the American worker-union men and women-who returned from World War II to make our economy the envy of the world. It was labor that helped build the largest middle class in history. So even if you're not a union member, every American owes something to America's labor movement.
There's much more, especially on healthcare reform, so go over for the full report at Blue Virginia.
