Mid-Summer Labor Musings

As I sit here at the computer logging this entry, I am three months into a job that I enjoy, although my position is not in the bargaining unit(give me some time).  Some of the employees are union, although if/when I decide to travel that route, I will likely choose a different form of representation.

I've been mildly working on my first book, which covers my experience working for the purple giant in Appalachia.  I'm working on an article about the faux crisis created by the GOP to kill the United States Postal Service.  Why would they want to do that?  Simple - the USPS is one of the most unionized workforces in the United States.  More to come on that one.

I'm also putting together a sort of then and now article on the labor movement.  If you've been around the movement twenty or more years, post a comment or shoot an email about how the labor movement is different from when you first became involved.

Hope everyone is having a great summer.

In Solidarity,
