    A Very Merry Belated Labor Day

    09/02/2008

    In keeping with Labor Day traditions the nation over, yesterday many got a day off to reflect on all the wonderous things labor unions have done for America - most notably, getting us a day off at the end of the summer - but also prevailing wage, increased costs, and lower productivity.

    With union numbers waning, it's no surprise that groups like the AFL-CIO are pushing the ironically named "Employee Free Choice Act" - a bill that would eliminate secrect ballots for individuals deciding whether or not they want their workplace to be unionized.  There have also been calls in this election for the repeal of "Right to Work" laws that enable employees to opt out of union representation.
