A Union Note

One of my favorite slogans is "Unions, the people who brought you the weekend." It's true -- just as manufacturers often had to be pushed into making safety devices standard (think airbags), employers usually had to be pushed into offering worker benefits (child labor laws, unlocked doors in factories -- think Triangle Shirtwaist fire).

Here is an editorial that also discuss these issues:

"Employers' generosity had little to do with today's working environment," Patriot News Op-ed
