I do want to wish a most happy Labor Day 2020 to all of you who work for a paycheck.
I’m happy to say that I’m in that proud group of people and I always look forward to this day as it comes around each year. I’m a proud member of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union and have been a Teamster as well.
The UFCW represents workers in retail, breweries and restaurants. Folks in the budding cannabis industry, too. The UFCW also rep’s many of the workers in the meat packing plants that were on the front lines when COVID-19 was devastating that industry back in the Spring.
It’s a very good thing, indeed, to be represented by a union and bargain collectively.
If you’d like to brush up on your history of this auspicious day, just follow this link.
Working folks, thanks for all you do. I wish all of you a happy–and relaxed–Labor Day.
