Will There Be Parades Tomorrow In Wisconsin?

by lizard

from wikipedia:

Oregon was the first state to make it a holiday in 1887. By the time it became a federal holiday in 1894, thirty states officially celebrated Labor Day.[2]. Following the deaths of a number of workers at the hands of the U.S. military and U.S. Marshals during the Pullman Strike, President Grover Cleveland reconciled with the labor movement. Fearing further conflict, legislation making Labor Day a national holiday was rushed through Congress unanimously and signed into law a mere six days after the end of the strike.

From contentious beginnings, to not wearing white for ladies after the first Monday in September. If we don’t remember, meaning can be leeched from anything.

    Nice illustration.

    Of course I like the one where the boss lays the helper off and rents a hydraulic lift.

      outsource, offshore, where labor’s cheap
      that’s the plan of the GOP
      who serve their corporate masters well
      while consigning labor to a desperate hell

      so who will stand for labor now?
      Democrats have forgotten how
      labor once helped their cause
      before they sold out to the boss

      now both sides service the money men
      while investing in a US security pen
      to keep the rabble from causing trouble
      after they got fucked by the housing bubble

    Where have all the corporate jobs gone?
    Tax free China.
    Where have all the corporate jobs gone?
    Regulation void Mexico.
    Where have all the corporate jobs gone.
    To business friendly countries every one.
    When will they ever learn?
    When will the liberals learn?

    Speaking of organized labor.

    *Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa had some profane, combative words for Republicans while warming up the crowd for President Obama in Detroit, Michigan on Monday.

    “We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They’ve got a war, they got a war with us and there’s only going to be one winner. It’s going to be the workers of Michigan, and America. We’re going to win that war,” Jimmy Hoffa Jr. said to a heavily union crowd.

    “President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these son of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong,” Hoffa added.

    Obama addressed the crowd shortly after Hoffa.*
