Celebrate Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day!!

Being from North Carolina, I was raised
to take Labor day seriously. I still get
riled when I hear people dissing unions.
Things are mostly better now for the
working man and woman than a few years ago,
but they wouldn’t be that way - nor would
they stay that way - if it wasn’t for unions.
One of the best union movies out there is
Matewan. It’s one of my top five movies of
all times. You’ll begin to see the importance
of unions, get to hear Hazel Dickens sing,
fall in love with Chris Cooper and well ...
being a Southern lady, I can’t say what you’ll
want to do with David Strathairn.
