White Shirt Day
On February 11, 1937 a handful of dedicated union people in Flint Michigan held
out and won recognition from one of the world’s largest corporations. Many of them had
lost their homes and most of their families were destitute in the middle of a Michigan
This Thursday, February 11, 2010 stop for a moment to recognize the efforts and
perseverance of this brave lot. In many ways, they paved the way for s strong middle
class and opportunities that, before their time, people could only dream about.
Today, unions are more important than ever and are a vital partner in the push to
re-manufacture America. Americans pretty much want the same things today that they
did in 1937; dignity in the work place, a good paying job with health care benefits and
enough to help their children reach their own dreams through education.
Americas unions not only make the work place safe and productive but are
involved in the community as well making sure there are opportunities for employment
and helping those less fortunate. If you have the opportunity, say Union Yes!
