Celebrate Labor Day by Supporting Unions and the Fight for $15 Movement

Celebrate Labor Day by supporting those who stand up for workers: Unions,  and the Fight for $15 movement.

Are you in a union? Raise a glass to it on Labor Day and find a way to give it more support, through donating money or time or both.

 

Not in a union? Check out this Wikipedia page that lists labor unions in the U.S. Can you join one of these?

Not in a union and can’t join those unions? Get behind the Fight for $15 movement.

Launched in 2012, it’s a confederation of underpaid workers who are pushing to raise the U.S. minimum wage to $15.

 

And whether you’re in a union or not, check out the American Federation of Labor & Congress of Industrial Organization (AFL-CIO)’s rabbit-hole-worthy page, Our Labor History Timeline, which lays out the history of the U.S. labor movement:
