It's too hot to handle so I gotta get up and go

It's a cruel ... cruel summer"

Labor Day

This holiday has really strayed far from it's ideals, but here you go . . .

What have Unions EVER done for you?

Eight-Hour Day
Five-Day Workweek
Health Insurance
Military Leave
Good Pensions
Paid Sick Leave
Higher Wages
Overtime Pay
Job Safety
Paid Holidays
Job Security
Paid Vacations
Family and Medical Leave
Fair Treatment for Women, People of Color & Workers with Disabilities

The free market would have provided these anyway, correct righties?
