For more than a century, organized labor battled to put the American Dream within the reach of working families.  Their struggles benefited the entire labor force.  Among the improvements in working conditions brought to us by Organized Labor are:

     * The 40 hour work week & overtime

     * Paid sick leave, vacation time, & holidays

     * Health insurance

     * Workers compensation

     * Unemployment compensation

     * The minimum wage & prevailing wage

     * Retirement benefits

We offer our thanks for their struggles, past and present, to assure a better life for everyone who works for paycheck.
