Happy Labor Day

Talk to Danny!

Labor Day this year is more meaningful than perhaps it has ever been.

Not only are the unions shouldered with the task of helping workers keep the jobs they have, but with many more losing their jobs, unions also have the obligation of making sure they can keep and maintain what they have earned.

As employers tighten their purse strings or suffer with closing their doors for good, the solution of creating jobs is a dilemma that has no shortcut answers for anyone.

Supporting President Obama’s healthcare plan is at the top of most Democrats’ agenda because it would immediately create jobs for the medical profession and enable others who have jobs the ability to make it to work more frequently and perform their task more consistently.

Another hot stove topic is the Employee Free Choice Act that will gather a full head of steam when they go directly to Washington D.C. to lobby senators and the House of Representatives for legislation that will allow for employees the protection of a union of their choice without the threat of losing their job.

The Employee Free Choice Act Coalition will converge on the Nation capitol in big numbers with organizations from around America being represented.

If you have a job today, you should appreciate it regardless of what you may think about it because there are probably thousands who would love to be in your shoes.

If you don’t have a job, keep your hopes high and continue to what is necessary to secure a job. Don’t just give in to the negative information that you receive in new reports.

If you’ve lost your job, don’t allow for that to get you down and keep trying to find another one. Often you may have to think out of the box and do work that you either have not done before or may be uncomfortable with. The choice is slim, but their options may offer a glimmer of hope.

Here is wishing each and every one of you a very Happy Labor Day!
