08 Sep Unity is American
The Labor Wire
Working people across America are united in our concern for the people affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. These storms are shaking the foundation of our world. Union members continue to give our time, labor and hard-earned money so damaged communities can recover. We won’t stop until the work is done, even as we pray for everyone in the path of the storms.
Message of the Day – Unity Is American
America’s working people stand together in the hardest times, such as this past week when utility and public service workers labored selflessly to maintain and rebuild vital water, sewage and electrical systems as Hurricane Harvey flooded Texas.
Working people in Florida are preparing to do the same today.
America’s working people are the backbone of our nation. We are its beating heart.
After we work to save and rebuild the lives affected by these storms, we will rebuild our communities by standing in unity and negotiating together with our employers for a better life.
Kitchen Table Economics
63%: That’s how many Americans don’t have enough in savings to cover a $500 emergency, which is one reason why disasters like hurricanes punish working families so hard.
