Those of us who originate from the families of duty-bound laborers, always know the importance of labor unions.
Labor Day was started to honor those men and women who labor, day in and day out, for the good of their families, and their fellow union workers.
As the daughter of a man who easily worked a 60 hour week to provide for a family of five, I know what it means to work hard and to have enjoyed the benefits of a union.
Today, America needs their unions more than ever. However, the strength of unions are at an all-time low.
When you see a man or woman off to work in the early hours of dawn struggling to support and provide for a family- please consider the fact that their work is as important and necessary as those who have been lucky enough to have a college education or who have come from families who have paid their way.
I am the daughter of a Teamster- and proud to say, "Happy Labor Day!"
