I recommend this terrific book on Labor Day to acquaint (or reacquaint) ourselves with labor history and the union movement. My grandmother (now deceased) was a little girl when her father fought for union representation in Eastern Kentucky’s coal mines during the 1930s. She remembers going from sick, hungry, and barefoot to having enough food and a pair of winter shoes—thanks to the United Mine Workers of America.
Well said Tamela!
The Last Ballad by Wiley Cash is a great story about a young woman and her efforts to fight for labor in Gastonia. https://www.wileycash.com/the-last-ballad
