Labor Day

Yesterday was Labor Day, and a few reminders are in order. If you have a 40-hour work week, if you get overtime, if you have employer-provided health insurance, if you have worker's compensation insurance, if you are protected by occupational health and safety laws - why, organized labor got those things for you.

And take the time to read this sobering article about how welfare "reform" has hurt the poor and reduced their chances of leaving poverty behind (h/t DeLong).
