What Organized Labor Has Done for Us

It's (almost) Labor Day, 2012. We all have a lot to thank organized labor for:
  • Minimum wage
  • 40-hour work week
  • Occupational health & safety regulations
  • Child labor laws
  • Unemployment insurance
  • Passage of the Social Security Act
  • Passage of the National Labor Relations Act
  • Collective bargaining rights
  • Pensions
  • Passage of many civil rights laws
