The Good Labor Is Still Doing

We all know that we would not have weekends if it were not for organized labor. We also know that wages, benefits and working conditions for all workers would not be as good as they are but for the efforts of organized labor. Many do not like to admit it, but the truth is that as the percentage of workers in unions has declined, those wages, benefits and working conditions have also.
Ray Abernathy has a post up about the good labor is still doing. Well worth the read.
