Labor Day

Once upon a time the labor movement was a noble thing. They stuck to workers rights and avoided partisan politics beyond the work place. Unfortunately commies infiltrated the movement and reduced it to a joke.

My local does an excellent job fighting for the rights of our members. In many cases MGT does not follow its own rules and procedures. I am considered a hard core activist by management. Whenever a union was available at work I joined right away with one exception. My family did not want me being the shop steward in the garment business. I won that election almost unanimously as I voted against myself due to potential conflicts of interest. My job was turned into management formally and that was the first step into management one of many.

Yeah , we know. You're a regular Samuel Gompers.

First the family pushes you out of the business, then you get a job paying three times as much and it's not clear how you managed to screw that up.

Stay away from food in Crown Heights. It probably hasn't been inspected. That food poisoning sounded dangerous.

I did not get sick like this at a kosher place. It appears to be food poisoning followed by a nasty bug.

I left the family business and rose to the top of the profession. My salary increased with my reputation.Oddly down the road my family wanted me to handle their account and I refused and was backed by the owner as being too small for my skills.

What's noble about throwing dynamite at cops?
