Tune in to my show on The Working Family Radio Network live stream at 3:05 PM when author/blogger, The Reverend Manny joins me for an announcement that could be the beginning of a movement to empower the bottom 98%. Then, come back to this site around 9:00 PM EDT for further details.
Recent statistics say that union membership in all of the employment sectors is down to 12% in the United States. Those numbers are dangerously low and, if they get smaller, could force unions into extinction or weaken a union's bargaining power. If you are fortunate enough to be a union member, you should consider yourself blessed.
As union people, we have to share our good fortune by Sharing The Solidarity! I am trying to start a grassroots organization that will help unions grow and be a real union person's alternative to the Tea Party. I have a number of interesting ideas and invite you to join me. I am going to set up a conference call so we can toss some ideas around. Stay tuned here for more details or contact me using the contact form on this web site.
Happy Labor Day! Solidarity!
