You?/Me?/We? built what now?!?!?

Don't worry, nobody's waiting for an apology for you successfully misunderstanding what Labor Day is all about.

http://www.addictinginfo.org/2012/09...gement-videos/

130 years ago, the nation celebrated its first Labor Day. The holiday is a recognition of all that labor and the labor unions have done for us. Without unions, children would still be working in mines. There would be no holidays from work, no overtime, no workplace safety laws, no minimum wage, I could go on. Without labor, we’d be living in filth and squalor without the modern conveniences we have grown to need. If you ask the modern Republican party though, it’s all about the guy at the top, the guy who apparently does it all himself. On this Labor Day, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) is honoring management with this tweet:

Eric Cantor: "Today, we celebrate those who have taken a risk, worked hard, built a business and earned their own success."

In less than 140 characters, Cantor poked a stick in the eyes of the vast majority of Americans, those who are employed by others. There is no shame in not being an entrepreneur. The country needs labor. We need people to build roads. We need people to nurse the sick. We need people to pick our food. We need people to put out our fires. We need people to deliver our goods to Walmart or Whole Foods. We need people to keep us safe from criminals, whether the criminals wear hoodies or custom-made Armani suits. Banks need more tellers than Presidents. We even need people who give their lives, free of charge, to the service of others. Without labor, there would be no management.

It’s no accident that Mitt Romney is the GOP nominee. While it is Barack Obama who is the personification of the American dream, it is Mitt Romney who is the personification of the anti-labor attitude of the Republican party.
