     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 >>>

President's Letter to Lakeland Center members 

By Joe Uehlein

The approach of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day on April 22 provides us an opportunity to reflect on the “long, strange trip” shared by the environmental movement and the labor movement over four decades here on Spaceship Earth.

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!”

LANSING, Mich. -- Michigan’s state capitol building will remain open to citizen demonstrations after workers filed suit and won a temporary injunction against arbitrary closure of the building during massive protests against anti-worker, anti-family legislation supported by Gov. Rick Snyder. 

About 3,000 demonstrators were inside and around the Capitol today, protesting Gov. Snyder’s plan to push a radical change in Michigan’s labor laws through the legislature with little advance notice and no public hearing.  Michigan State Police responded by closing the building, shutting citizens out of the legislative process.
