     Hey!  Lets give a big shout out and all the help we can to the fast food workers of America.  They are doing all they can to raise the minimum wage which is a joke in most states and along with their great efforts they want to be UNIONIZED.  The vast majority of fast food workers are young it is very gratifying that they are well aware that unions are the only real protection workers have.  I have heard, and perhaps some of you have heard, some workers and retired workers say unions are no good bas-----, yet they totally embrace all the many benefits that unions afforded them for a very comfortable living standard.  Read more >>>

A billion people participate in Earth Day events, making it the largest secular civic event in the world. But when it was founded in 1970, according to Earth Day’s first national coordinator Denis Hayes, “Without the UAW, the first Earth Day would have likely flopped!”
