Labor Day - The American Workers' Day of Recognition

Labor Day Poster by Ricardo Levins Morales

Labor Day 2013

Today we 
give recognition to the many American workers whose hard work, determination and might
 built this country from the ground up.

Ricardo Levins Morales depicts in his poster with great detail the accomplishments of the
American Labor Movement.
The individuals and the multiples of
the American work force
and their respective achievements
are often overlooked
but can never be denied.

I give a special call out to my father,
a Union Leader who fought each and every day for workers' rights and recognition. His efforts improved the living standards of many who knew him and benefited many more who never had the good fortune to meet him.

Happy Labor Day!
