LABOR: Workers, demand rights

| September 16, 2020 1:00 AM

The right to work for nothing law must have been the creation of business vampires. Any person who makes a living by preventing hourly employees from organizing to enable them to earn a fair wage. Drinks the blood and sweat of hourly men and women to deny them a living wage must not have a reflection in a mirror. That way he doesn’t have to look at himself.

This Labor Day we celebrated the hourly worker who is still able to buy a house and a car and still feed the family. Why is that so difficult to understand? The fed has all but given up on monitoring the inflation rate, an important part of which is wages/hour. They have remained the same for so long with almost no upward pressure. The worker is the pressure and a union is our strength.

United we stand. This state needs Democratic leadership. We are not slaves to our corporate master.
