Labor Day is not just hotdogs and hamburgers

Working people are marching all over the country to let political leaders and candidates know that unions are essential.  Things are out of balance with too much wealth in the hands of a few.  We are fighting back against greedy corporations and their political cronies who have created a system in which working families have to swim upstream just to keep what little they already have.  It is imperative that we continue to fight to protect our union rights.  Here in Pennsylvania, our members participated in actions in Allentown, Wilkes Barre, Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia.  In Allentown, members Tara Stephenson and Susie Beller spoke passionately about what it means to be in a union and the real meaning of Labor Day.  In Wilkes Barre, members protested outside of the Chamber of Commerce.  In Pittsburgh, our members joined in one of the largest Labor Day parades in the country.  And in Philadelphia, members joined with community groups to protest to raise the minimum wage to $15.
