Labor Day Celebrated

Progressive activists of all kinds are continuing to find the once-exclusive American labor movement receptive to working with everybody and on every issue concerning worker justice. The recent Texas AFL-CIO convention in Irving had speakers and resolutions in favor of an all-out effort to bring the entire workers movement together. Immigration reform heads the list of new commitments for the labor federation. Low-wage worker issues are getting more attention than ever in recent lifetimes.

Progressive activists should be subscribing to the Texas AFL-CIO news releases by writing, but in case they are not, here is a list of known activities around Labor Day:
