Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
In addition to the above information, I think that the Unions have now taken great achievements of and for labor and turned them into the destruction of America. This is due to the huge pensions promised to workers even when the money is not there to pay them. And unions helped elect Obama and have pushed for Obamacare but now are deciding to opt out of it because it was not what they thought. Unions overall (not all) are destroying the American ability to be the great producer we once were. Detroit is a prime example. Unions at one time were needed, but no so much today.
So when you remember Labor Day, remember what we once were. The greatest industrial complex of the modern world. We won WWII because of our ability to produce. If WWIII were to happen we will not win because we can no longer produce what we would need due to unions & lawyers. Now we are the greatest consumer of goods. No more steel mills, no huge mfg plants like years gone past.
Sad, but we are no longer the super power on the industrial world. We may still have the Armed Forces but if the shit was to hit the fan, can we produce what we need. I think not.
