honesty



The world is moved not only by the mighty shoves of the heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.

Helen Keller

And to all the honest workers out there. Happy Friday. If I am not mistaken, unions have been responsible for the 40 hour work week and the weekend. Enjoy it while you can, my friends.

Emphasis on honesty. If only those in power were so honest.

Sad at the union-busting that is going on. And all of the other ways those who are in "power" are choosing to divide rather than unite.

I'm in complete agreement with you. I was there during the union busting seventies and eighties, and felt the stress of panicked workers as more and more plants closed anyway in the decades that followed, outsourcing to countries where workers have no rights.

We can stop this in the long run by choosing to buy only fair-trade products, but that means buying very little at all while we wait for demand to grow enough to force a change in supply.
