It’s Labor Day 2011. According to the U.S. Department of Labor website,
The vital force of labor added materially to the highest standard of living and the greatest production the world has ever known and has brought us closer to the realization of our traditional ideals of economic and political democracy. It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pay tribute on Labor Day to the creator of so much of the nation’s strength, freedom, and leadership — the American worker.
Absolutely. Let us celebrate and honor the American worker by giving him a day of rest from labor.
But look what Obozo said in his official Presidential Proclamation for Labor Day:
The right to organize and collectively bargain is a fundamental American value. …We reaffirm that collective bargaining is a cornerstone of the American dream.
In other words, I celebrate UNION workers.
