Unite With Labor For Progressive Change

If you want positive change, work with labor. If you want better government officeholders, work with labor. Union and non-union people alike can “get on the program” with the AFL-CIO, not only to win the current elections, but to keep on winning the fight for progress!

The way forward for the progressive movement is through labor. Working people are the only ones who can change things and keep them changed. We didn’t just bring weekends, we brought on virtually every positive change in American history. Did Lincoln free the slaves? Yes, but who supported Lincoln and got him into office? Labor!

Start tomorrow at 8:00am with breakfast at the Elevator Construction Union Hall, 1924 Baird Farm Rd. All of North Texas Labor is concentrating for a mega-block walk.
