Remember, my friends, there are hero's all around you. She has two jobs and no health insurance for the kids she is trying to give a fair start in life. He is, against the advice of friends and family, struggling to bring collective bargaining to his workplace despite the threats of the paid consultant. They are the young adults who don't know what the solution is, but they know something is wrong the way it is. And they are willing to take a chance on justice. Remember that the rights we have didn't come from Heaven, they were paid for with the blood, sweat and tears of your Grandparents, Fathers, Mothers, Brothers, and Sisters. Your children's future depends on what you do to protect and enhance the protections provided by those who have gone before. On Labo(u)r Day, and every day, examine the legacy you want to leave them. And act accordingly. They count on you for that.
All the best,
