justkimu: (Mother Jones)
Today is Labor Day. Please take time to thank those who are working very hard for you to have the things you use daily. Think of the builders who provided your shelter, the factory worker who made your clothing, the farmer who provided your food, and the children who support their hard-working parents.

As Utah Phillips says...


Remember one thing...just because this is 2008, many workers are not free. This goes beyond the paltry war against WalMart, but trickles down to the immigrants who come here looking for work, but are put into modern slavery. Think of the workers around the world who do not have the power of people, and must work 12 hours a day...or worse, until they die.

For those who have given their life to provide for others, I give you this beautiful prayer...


It is this day that I always raise my glass to Mother Jones, the most "dangerous woman in America."
