There is all manner of filth and lies being told on conservative Facebook pages today about how Democrats are to blame for the attacks of 9/11. It made me stop and think back to the things that I recall about our national nightmare.
Labor unions are important. The American worker has a lot of things to thank the efforts of organized labor for. The 40 hour work week, pensions, health care, and the minimum wage are just a few things that unions have fought for on behalf of the American worker.

To this effort, corporate bosses and their Republican puppets are falsely blaming organized labor for the problems in our economy.
