Welcome to Labor Day Weekend! The Labor Day celebration exploits the backyard barbeque, much like the Fourth of July, with patriotic decorations dominating the scene. Since its inception in the 1880s it celebrates a means of honoring workers for all their efforts. In that spirit, the backyard barbeque is often laden with hammocks, comfortable lounge chairs, lawn blankets and even lots of huge pillows!
If it weren't for the democratic socialism of the labor movement, we'd still be enduring these evils. About now what we need to fear is a return to those days, since TPP and big money seeks to bring the downgrading of our way of life, a dismantling of years of hard earned labor law, social nets, and more, that many have paid a high price for, including death. Don't let it happen. Stand with Bernie. Democratic socialism means We The People.
