Labor Day Thoughts

via Adam Proteau tweets,

Happy Labor Day to all who understand value and triumphs of unions & see past all attempts to vilify notion of strength in numbers.

Happy Labor Day, Ted Lindsay, Bill Gadsby, Fern Flaman, Gus Mortson & all (incl. Doug Harvey & Carl Brewer) who fought for @nhlpa

Happy Labor Day to all who understand value and triumphs of unions

Really, Adam? Labor Day is about unions, and all the good they have done?

Unions have done much good, no question. But they’ve also over-reached in some instances, to the negative benefit of members.

And, yes, I am a union member (NEA, MEA, SEA).

Happy Labor Day to everyone, regardless of how you feel about unions.

Government worker unions are doing to the working man what the Robber Barons did a hundred years ago.  Taxing them into oblivion.  Interestingly the Teamsters recently LAID OFF staff and called for belt toghtening.  Do as I say not as I do.!

Thanks to Mr. Lindsay for doing what was right and fighting to secure the NHL pension for players.
